- About the festival
In this riveting, suspenseful dystopian drama, a lavish upperclass wedding goes awry in an unexpected uprising of class warfare that gives way to a violent coup d’etat. As seen through the eyes of the sympathetic young bride and the servants who work for- and against- her wealthy family, Nuevo Orden / New Order breathlessly traces the collapse of one political system as a more harrowing replacement springs up in its wake.
“This dystopian view of Mexico is only slightly off from reality. In similar scenarios, corrupt governments have historically responded to all protests with dictatorial violence. If inequality is not addressed by civic means, and if all dissenting voices are silenced, chaos ensues” (Director statement).
“A bestial film, an exceptionally ambitious work, is Franco's most shocking and provocative film (which is a lot to say)”
