Plot Summary: "Silent Light" begins with an unforgettable sequence a slowly unfolding, time-lapse shot of daybreak over a rural Mexican Mennonite community, whose inhabitants speak an archaic form of German (Plautdietsch) and wear traditional attire. Johan (Cornelio Wall Fehr) is a married farmer who, against the laws of his faith and traditional beliefs, falls in love with another woman, Marianne (Maria Pankratz). His conflicted behavior threatens to destroy the soul of his wife, Esther (Miriam Toews). This tale of profound love and conscience casts a spell, evoking the eerie religious tones of Carl Theodor Dreyer.
