Luz, a young cabdriver, drags herself into the brightly lit entrance of a rundown police station. A demonic entity follows her, determined to finally be close to the woman it loves in this audacious, psychotropic horror film shot on 16mm.
In Luz, the school of William Friedkin and William Peter Blatty merges with South American culture and esotericism to create a one-of-a-kind film where the scenic setting of Fassbinder‘s cinema meets the unconscious and the madness of Andrzej Zulawski. A hypnotic trip and a radical sensory experience that acts on the spectator’s synapses thanks to a sound design and a soundtrack that are best enjoyed at top volume.
An experimental shocker with an irresistible retro vibe, Tilman Singer’s first feature fluidly assembles elements of influence from the horror and arthouse cinema of the 1970s – think Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Andrej Zulawski and Lucio Fulci – in one compact whole. However shot on 16mm Scope, with impeccable visuals worthy of the aforementioned classics,High on Films
