Interview: Carlos Reygadas – Our Time

Casting his wife, children and himself in his fifth feature film, Carlos Reygadas explores the tricky negotiations of being in an open relationship and thus takes a amped up view of jealousy, control and a lack of control. The three hour text visits philosophical and moral implications in couplehood. A five country co-production, Our Time (Nuestro tiempo) premiered in Venice, played at TIFF and was most recently shown at Rotterdam and then the filmmaker made a stop in Montreal for a Rétrospective Carlos Reygadas: lumières et ténèbres at the Cinémathèque québécoise. We discussed how he thinks about dialogue when mapped in confining spaces, about how mini screens offer moments of clarity and reprieve, we discussed the role of narration and his working relationship with Diego Garcia (Neon Bull, Wildlife).
