Strand Releasing Acquires Cannes Drama 'Post Tenebras Lux' From Carlos Reygadas

'Post Tenebras Lux'

Strand Releasing has acquired all U.S. rights to Carlos Reygadas’ “Post Tenebras Lux,” which most recently screened at AFI Fest. The specialty distributor plans a May release at Film Forum in New York.

Latin for “light after darkness,” “Post Tenebras Lux” follows an urban family struggling with life in the Mexican countryside. It had its world premiere in competition at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, where Reygadas won the best director prize. Jaime Romandía of Mantarraya produced.

“We’re thrilled to be working on Mr. Reygadas’ film,” said Strand’s Marcus Hu. “His sensibilities align with Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Lucrecia Martel and Jacques Nolot, some of the strongest voices we have in our library.”

Strand’s Jon Gerrans negotiated the deal with Fiorella Moretti of NDM.

Forthcoming Strand releases include Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s “Meking Hotel,” Fatih Akin’s “Polluting Paradise” and Ulrich Seidl’s “Paradise” trilogy.

    Yay! So glad this got US distribution. Unfortunately I'll be in Japan at that time probably. Can't wait to rent it on iTunes or watch it on Netflix, or wherever it's available.
