Panorama - Against the Grain

Luminum Maximiliano Schonfeld

Since 1991, the area around Paraná River in Argentina has experienced numerous extraterrestrial sightings, captivating the interest of renowned ufologists and researchers Silvia and Andrea Perez Simondini. This mother-daughter duo runs a local UFO museum and organizes astronomical outings with like-minded enthusiasts, where they stare out into the night sky looking for a sign of extraterrestrial life. Made to the rhythms of space-age pop music, Luminum is more than just a documentary about hypothetical alien life, its oneiric landscapes nourish the imagination to the point of confusing the real with the fictional, creating a unique and fascinating mood.
