Sublimely shot entirely on location in the Mexican Mennonite community near Chihuahua, Silent Light opens and closes with slowly unfolding images of dawn and sunset. This story of one man’s inescapable, passionate love for two women, and the spiritual crisis, redemption and miracle that follows, is acclaimed for its emotional and visual brilliance.
