New Order

Nuevo orden

Rating: M18 (Sexual Violence and Nudity)

Synopsis

A newlywed’s lavish wedding celebration takes an unimaginable turn for the worst when angry dispossessed protestors stage a coup d’état at their swanky private residence. The violent upheaval by the disenfranchised in Mexico immediately gives way to a more insidious evil: a military that capitalises on the riots to extort from the rich by imprisoning and torturing them for ransom. The poor become further stratified, their lives in constant peril in the new dystopian state rule.

New Order’s unapologetic indictment of class and racial inequalities as well as state corruption resonates well beyond the Latin American experience, providing an extreme depiction of a future if present disparities are left unchecked.
