Now in Production: Carlos Reygadas Currently Filming “Estela de sombra”

Carlos Reygadas is currently in production on his sixth feature film, Estela de sombra. We suspect that filming in taking place in his native Mexico. We had reported that Reygadas had received some coin and could possibly film portions of his next film in Poland. We conclude that the titled next project Wake of Umbra and Estela de sombra are one of the same – when translated it means “trail of shadow.”

Cristina Velasco who was a producer on Peter Greenaway’s Eisenstein in Guanajuato, and more recently Michel Franco’s last Venice preemed pair in New Order (2020) and Sundown (2021) will produce for Paloma Negra Films. It is dated on the prod company’s website that an April 2024 delivery is expected – so Cannes is a distinct possibility but I’d also say Venice Film Festival premiere is in the cards – Our Time premiered there in 2018.
