For the final night of Extraordinary Visions: Mexico Past and Present Through the Eyes of Gabriel Figueroa and Carlos Reygadas, we are honored to be hosting director Carlos Reygadas for the advanced screening of his new film Post Tenebras Lux (2012), the work which earned him the best director prize at this past year’s Cannes Film Festival. After the film, we’ll have a chance to sit down with Mr. Reygadas and ask him about this mystifying, ambitious, jaw-dropping-ly beautiful new work as well as the rest of his career. For a teaser, see the images below as well as the wonderful interview about his film and his upcoming visit to Atlanta on Burnaway.

We couldn’t be more excited about hosting a sneak preview of the awe-inspiring film Beasts of the Southern Wild, which won the Camera d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival and the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance. To get as excited as we are about this movie, read Amy Taubin’s review for Art Forum, Manohla Dargis’ glowing coverage for the New York Times, and a really charming piece by Jada Yuan at Vulture about the film’s 8-year-old protagonist.

Above all, be sure and watch the trailer:
