Luis – creepy sinister and mysterious

This is so sad and beautifully sinister.  This movie recently won the big YouTube competition. The film-makers (Luis (2008) by Niles Atallah, Joaquin Cociña, Cristóbal León) are Chilean and this is the second of their films featuring Luis.  Turn your sound up so that you can hear the breathing.

I’ve just read a book called The courage consort where the main character in the book hears screaming nightly from  the forest where the house she is staying in is located, this video was in my mind when I was reading it.

SYNOPSIS: Luis talks about his life in the forest and his relationship with Lucía. He appears in charcoal on the walls of a room filled with broken objects that constantly shift around. Little by little the room clears up as the objects return to their proper places.
