About Silent Light
Winner of the Jury Prize at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival and named to the New York Times “Best Films of the 21st Century So Far” in 2017, celebrated filmmaker Carlos Reygadas’s subtly wrought masterpiece tells the story of a married Mennonite man living in an isolated, conservative community who falls in love with another woman. Filmed in Plautdietsch, the Low German dialect of the Mennonites, it explores the dramatic tension between shared moral values and individual fulfilment.
