On an otherwise nondescript night, taxi driver Luz walks into a police station, claiming that she’s been assaulted. Nearby in a bar, a mysterious woman named Nora is working her magic on Dr. Rossini, recounting how her lover recently jumped out of a taxi. As both situations transpire, the connections between Luz and Nora set the stage for a demonic night from hell for those unfortunate souls who’ve encountered the two women on this particular evening. Directed by Tilman Singer; Starring: Luana Velis, Jan Bluthardt, Julia Riedler, Johannes Benecke, and Nadja Stübiger.
Run-time: 70 minutes
Stricken with grief, Aubrey is having a difficult time coping with the death of her best friend, Grace. To combat the overwhelming sadness, she breaks into Grace’s apartment and quietly picks up where her late friend left off, caring for her pets and using her possessions, not to mention sleeping in her bed. The next morning, though, everything’s changed. The streets outside are desolate, fires engulf the city, and people are being attacked by something inhuman. There’s only one person who can potentially save the world: Aubrey, thanks to clues found on mixtapes left by Grace. Directed by A.T. White; Starring: Virginia Gardner, Christina Masterson, Eric Beecroft, and Natalie Mitchell. A post-screening Q&A with the director will follow.
Run-time: 101 minutes
