El Señor, the leader of a small cult in the mountains, returns one day to his village with a child who is purported to be the new messiah. But when only pain and destruction befall the community, El Señor finds himself under attack from his own followers, including his three daughters, whose burgeoning femininity has already caused them to question their faith.
Equally mystical and terrifying, LUZ: THE FLOWER OF EVIL is a fantasy folk horror film where tranquility belies a simmering evil.
“A gorgeous act of provocation.”
“For enthusiasts of the recent resurgence of Folk-Horror, from Eggers’ The Witch and The Lighthouse, to Ari Aster’s Midsommar, and Lukas Feigelfeld’s Hagazussa, Luz is essential viewing.”
– Kurt Halfyard, Screen Anarchy
“A bold, poetic and stark motion picture. A debut that impresses.”
