Nuevo orden & Introduction at HOME

Tom Grieve, Cinema Editor

Preview/ Nuevo orden + introduction at HOME Manchester, Manchester 11 August 2021 Tickets from £7.5 — Book now

Jason Wood, Creative Director of Film & Culture at HOME and Visiting Professor at Manchester Metropolitan University, is on hand to introduce a screening of Mexican director Michel Franco’s (After Lucia) shocking, socio-political thriller Nuevo orden (New Order) as part of the 27th ¡Viva! Spanish & Latin American Festival.

Winner of the 2020 Venice Film Festival Grand Jury Prize, Franco’s film opens with a lavish high society wedding that is interrupted by a violent siege during which the guests are robbed, brutalised and held captive. As the bride (Naian González Norvind) escapes and tries to rally help it becomes clear that the incident is part of a coordinated nationwide uprising that capitalises on Mexico’s deep social divisions.

Jason Wood’s introduction to the film will draw on his expertise as the author of the newly released and updated The Faber Book of Mexican Cinema.

Jason Wood’s introduction to the film will draw on his expertise as the author of the newly released and updated The Faber Book of Mexican Cinema. The book lucidly takes readers through the history of Mexican cinema from the silent film days through to the present day, structured around a series of nineteen exclusive interviews with the biggest names in the industry.

Included within are discussions with Mexican art house auteurs such as Franco and Carlos Reygadas, as well as acclaimed Mexican filmmakers such as Guillermo del Toro, Alfonso Cuarón and Alejandro G. Iñárritu who have gone on to produce distinctive, award-winning work within the Hollywood system.

The event at HOME is a chance to hear Wood talk about the health of Mexican cinema and how Franco’s film fits into the wider industry landscape. The Faber Book of Mexican Cinema should be available to buy in HOME’s bookshop, but look out for details of a competition if you’d like to win a copy.
