In this portrait, Mexican light master Carlos Reygadas (Post Tenebras Lux, 2012) seldom addresses the camera directly, but allows himself to be filmed during his first commercial assignment.

One of the most emblematic films by the master concerns a holy fragment of celluloid that can only be seen by a secret society known as the Philokinetes.
Five pesos and a cup of coffee on a table top. Raúl Ruiz gets the most from this minimal set-up, both visually and through the laconic soundtrack.
