MADRID — New York-based independent distributor Monument Releasing, founded by Visit Film’ Ryan Kampe, has secured North American distribution rights to “Our Time,” from Mexico’s Carlos Reygadas, winner of Cannes Jury (“Still Light”) and Director (“Light After Darkness”) prizes.

Monument Releasing will open “Our Time” in cinema theaters in North America in June 2019, followed by a VOD and home entertainment release.

Struck - Michael - Weber - Match - Factory

Struck with Michael Weber’s The Match Factory, the sales agent on the film, as well as one of its co-producers, the deal will give more outlets to a title which world premiered at last year’s Venice Festival, after Reygadas’ first four main features played Cannes.

“Our Time” turns on a couple who live on a ranch in , central Mexico, raising fighting bulls. Esther runs the ranch, Juan, a renown poet, raises the bulls. They have an open relationship, but Juan’s world is thrown out of kilter when Esther becomes infatuated with the estate’s horse trainer.

Shot - Years - Ranch - Reygadas - Hours

Shot for two years on a ranch in, with Reygadas lensing 50 hours of its surrounding nature, “Our Time” has Reygadas and his wife and editor Natalia Lopez playing Juan and Esther. But the film is neither autobiographical nor a self portrait, he has insisted, rather a vision of the lack of, and need for, human communication shot in context which records the beauty and brutality of nature.
