LUZ
2018, 70 min, Germany, Dir: Tilman Singer

Shooting on luscious 16mm Scope, first-time feature writer-director Tilman Singer crafts a revelatory experimental shocker, with a dual ’70s arthouse and horror sensibility: Think Fulci by way of Zulawski. Bloodied and bruised, Chilean cab driver Luz (Luana Velis) stumbles into a near-empty police station on a stormy night. Elsewhere, her childhood friend Nora (Julia Riedler) seduces a psychologist with alcohol; by the time the doctor is ushered into the police station, it’s obvious there’s more to him than meets the eye. As Luz is repeatedly forced to rehash the events leading up to her arrival at the station, it becomes clear that something truly sinister is afoot, with life-and-death implications.
