Following its World Premiere at the 68th Berlin Film Festival, Tilman Singer’s indie favorite Luz will open in New York and Los Angeles on July 19th, courtesy of Screen Media.
Luz stars Luana Velis as a young cabdriver who drags herself into a run-down police station while being pursued by a woman (played by Julia Riedler) who is possessed by a demonic entity.
"Every so often there’s a film that really unnerves, and just flat-out scares us," Screen Media’s Seth Needle said when acquired ahead of Fantastic Fest. "Luz does exactly that. Tilman has made a beautiful but truly terrifying movie that people are going to be talking about for sure."
Written by Singer, Luz is captivatingly shot on 16mm with immersive sound and visuals that call to mind the experimental images of Giallo and '70s Spanish horror atmosphere. Produced by Dario Méndez Acosta and Singer, with a brooding synth score composed by Simon Waskow.
