UK PREMIERE Our Time + Q&A

Mexican auteur Carlos Reygadas’ Our Time is an unsparing account of a marriage in crisis. Starring the director and his real-life spouse Natalia López, the film depicts a couple navigating the difficult terrain of an open relationship.

Ranch owners Juan (Reygadas) and Esther (López) live on the outskirts of Mexico City with their three children. When horse-breaker Phil becomes the object of Esther’s longing, Juan finds himself profoundly distraught as he is forced to confront his precarious sense of pride and masculine identity.

Through an approach that mirrors non-fiction filmmaking traditions, Reygadas captures the beauty and intimacy of the family’s daily life, as well as the disruptive forces of paranoia, distrust and patriarchal values. With the breadth of attention that is typical of his films, Reygadas shifts his gaze from the human drama at the centre of the narrative to the rich environment of the ranch and its surrounds.

Disavowing the conventions of popular cinema, Our Time is a deeply personal and provocative work that asks challenging questions about the nature of romantic relationships outside of social norms.

This screening is followed by a Q&A with director Carlos Reygadas hosted by filmmaker and projection designer Athina Rachel Tsangari.

The Masterclass: The Cinema of Carlos Reygadas features as part of this years festival.
