Luz, a young taxi driver enters a police station in a trance like state. The policemen decide to put her under hypnosis to try to understand what really happened. Soon realities get muddled...
After a series of short films (El fin del mundo), Tilman Singer's end of school project, superbly shot in 16mm scope, reaches a wider than expected audience and is noticed in trendy festivals, to a point where he is thought of as one of the new talents to follow. Far from being just a festival sensation, Luz is one of the most exciting genre movies of the year, formally and narratively elating.
