August 2nd - 8th
Dazed and numb, Luz, a young cabdriver, drags herself into the brightly lit entrance of a run-down police station. A demonic entity, inhabiting her schoolmate Nora, follows her, determined to finally be close to the woman it loves.
Comparisons do not come easy with Luz, an arresting first feature from German writer-director Tilman Singer that is equal measures demonic-possession thriller, experiment in formalist rigor, and flummoxing narrative puzzle-box. Done, almost incredibly, as a film studies thesis project, this modestly scaled yet slick and conceptually audacious enterprise commands attention. At the very least, it’s an auspicious debut. Don't miss this one!
