POST TENEBRAS LUX to be released on DVD and Blu-ray on the 22nd of July

Drakes Avenue are pleased to announce they will be releasing Carlos Reygadas'controversial film POST TENEBRAS LUX on DVD and Blu-ray on the 22nd of July.  The Mexican Director won the Award for Best Director at last year's Cannes Film Festival where the film was also nominated for the Palme d'Or.
Juan (Adolfo Jiménez Castro) is a wealthy industrialist who has chosen to live with his wife and two children away from the trappings of wealth and the city.
Yet isolation in this superficially idyllic rural landscape seems to have brought little peace to his world. Juan’s marriage to Natalia (Nathalia Acevedo) is suffering under the strain of sexual ennui, the banal rigors of bringing up young children and living in a community where he is clearly an outsider. The morality of family life is further complicated by Juan’s post-colonial Mexican ethnicity and position as an employer and elite landowner in a country with an increasingly divergent wealth divide.
POST TENEBRAS LUX is a gorgeous allusive masterpiece examining marriage, poverty, class, gender, our place in nature and how evil lives with us in the most intimate and ordinary of places.
You can now pre-order the film here.
