Tilman Singer
Germany 2018 / 70’
Let the Corpses Tan Piercing

Luz Carrara, a young cabdriver who either suffers from mental illness or is possessed by Satan. During the film, we see the hypnosis sessions that she undergoes. Together with the psychotherapist taking care of her, we embark on a voyage that leads into the depths of madness and the very heart of darkness. Luz is a surrealistic horror reminiscent of both William Friedkin'sThe Exorcist and the work of David Lynch. It's a 70-minute-long nightmare overflowing with a cold, dark atmosphere, a film governed by its own strange logic that is at the same time both frightening and, in an odd way, funny.
