MUBI UK will release New Order in the UK and Ireland this summer.
The dystopian thriller from Michel Franco (After Lucia, Chronic) is an indictment on class divide and abuse of power, which speaks to the Latin American experience while resonating beyond its Mexico City setting and interrogating disturbing current global trends.
Following its premiere and Grand Jury Prize win at the Venice Film Festival, the film went on to screen at Toronto Film Festival and the BFI London Film Festival 2020. The film has recently been long-listed for a BAFTA in the Best Film Not in English Language category.
It follows a lavish upper-class wedding that goes awry when an unexpected uprising gives way to a violent coup. As seen through the eyes of young bride (Naian Gonzalez Norvind) and the servants who work for, and against, her wealthy family, the film traces the collapse of one political system as it is replaced by another.
The film will be released in cinemas (coronavirus pandemic allowing) in the UK and Ireland on 25th June 2021. Here’s a new clip:
