Nuevo Orden / New Order

by Michel Franco Gala Premieres

In a Mexico City of the near future, violent street protests continue to wreak havoc. But the residents of a glamorous walled estate in an elegant district barely notice. The lavish wedding reception of Marianne and her husband is in full swing. The city’s high society is in the middle of an intoxicating celebration when a former, faithful employee of the family unexpectedly turns up desperately begging Marianne for help. While the protests of the lower classes escalate and the military reacts with counter violence, Marianne finds herself caught between the two fronts. As things take their irreversible course, a new era begins for both the family and the city as a whole. Director Michel Franco drags us mercilessly into a dystopian maelstrom. His gripping thriller succinctly depicts what happens when the gap between rich and poor widens.
