About time...

IndieWire reports that Carlos Reygadas' Silent Light, which premiered at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival and has been sitting in distribution limbo in the US (likely due to Tartan's demise), will make its way to the Film Forum on 9 January 2009. They didn't name who was releasing the film (nor does the IMDb), but there's a possibility that it may be Palisades first theatrical release since acquiring Tartan's UK and US libraries. The film, which is nominated this year for an Independent Spirit Award for Best Foreign Film (yeah, I know, I don't quite understand their regulations), is the third film from Reygadas, who previously directed Japón and Battle in Heaven. Go out of your way to see it.

Does this mean it's coming to theaters or out on DVD? Hopefully it's DVD, I'd love to see and it probably won't come here (sigh)...

Eventually, yes. I'll let you know when I hear more.
