MEXICO CITY -- Carlos Reygadas' Mennonite love story "Luz Silenciosa" ("Silent Light") shined bright Tuesday night at Mexico City's Palace of Fine Arts, where it won best picture and director at the 50th Ariel Awards ceremony.
Nominated for nine of Mexico's top film prizes, the Mantarraya-produced "Silent Light" walked away with five statuettes, including best original screenplay, cinematography and supporting actress for Maria Pankratz.
"Silent Light" made its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival last year, where it scored the jury prize.
Best actor and actress honors went to Jorge Zarate for "Dos Abrazos" ("Two Embraces") and Irene Azuela for "Quemar los Naves" ("Burn the Bridges").
Horror film "Kilometro 31" ("Kilometer 31"), Mexico's top boxoffice grosser last year, picked up five awards in technical categories, including best special and visual effects.
Everardo Gonzalez's "Los Ladrones Viejos," a documentary about old-school Mexico City crooks, won best documentary and editing. It also was nominated for best picture, a rarity for a Mexican docu.
Best first work went to Ernesto Contreras' dark comedy "Parpados Azules" ("Blue Eyelids"), winner of the Sundance World Cinema special jury prize earlier this year.
In the Ibero-American category, the Argentine drama "XXY" got the nod.
The lifetime achievement award was handed to actress Silvia Pinal, who starred in dozens of films during Mexico's Golden Era of Cinema.
In commemoration of the Ariel's 50th anniversary, the Mexican film academy also paid special tribute to a group of below-the-line workers who have labored in the industry for 50 years.

Johan and Esther have been married for years, and live with their children in a Mennonite community from the north of Mexico. Against the law of God and man, Johan falls in love with another woman.
I was amazed by Silent Light – the setting, the language, the delicacy of the interactions between the people on screen, the drama of redemption. And most of all by Carlos Reygadas's extraordinarily rich sense of cinema, evident in every frame. A surprising picture, and a very moving one as well. — Martin Scorsese

Juan Uslé is a sensitive and private artist who avoids the madding crowds and likes to be able to concentrate. The act of painting generates an intimate, poetic and musical impulse in him. For a number of years he has been creating a series of works, the Soñé que revelabas, which he paints at night, aligning the series of dark brushstrokes to the rhythm of his beating heart. Although apparently abstract, his painting is sustained by the observation of reality, a meditation on the artists he admires, and it oscillates between a romantic nocturnal pole and a baroque and brightly coloured solar pole.
Whilst he has regularly exhibited his work over the last decade in California, New York, London, Berlin and, of course, in Spain, his painting has not been shown in Paris since 2002.
Born in 1954 in Santander, the artists splits his time between his home-studio in Saro, in the green hills of Cantabria, Spain, and New York where he has lived for nearly 25 years. His works are displayed in many European museums including the Musée national d’art moderne in Paris, the Tate Modern in London, the Irish Museum in Dublin, the Moderna Museet in Stockholm, the Reina Sofia in Madrid, the Staatsgalerie in Stuttgart and Munich, and in America.
