Lukas the Strange

(Lukas nino)

Lukas the Strange is surreal, dreamlike and wonderfully bizarre. Reality and cinematic fiction blur when a film crew comes to young Lukas’ town. With a strange and often mythological narrative, where memories are traded for bodily scars and people can become statues, the film touches on personal identity, complicated familial relationships and the slippage of memory.
