New Order

by Michel Franco

New Order


In this riveting, suspenseful dystopian drama, a lavish upper-class wedding goes awry in an unexpected uprising of class warfare that gives way to a violent coup d’état. As seen through the eyes of the sympathetic young bride and the servants who work for- and against- her wealthy family, NEW ORDER breathlessly traces the collapse of one political system as a more harrowing replacement springs up in its wake.


Michel Franco was born in Mexico City in 1979 and has put Mexican cinema in the global spotlight. The films he has written, directed and produced include Chronic (Best Screenplay Award at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival), Las Hijas de Abril (Jury Prize, in Certain Regard at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival), and Después de Lucía (Top Prize, in Certain Regard at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival).

He has also produced 600 Millas (directed by Gabriel Ripstein and winner of the Best First Feature Award at the 2015 Berlinale), From Afar (directed by Lorenzo Vigas, winner of the Golden Lion at the 2015 Venice Film Festival), among others. Michel will be releasing his 6th feature film, Nuevo Orden, set in a distopian Mexico City, in early 2021.
