    • Synopsis
    • Such is the boundlessness of Torres' magical realist fable LUKAS THE STRANGE. Thirteen year old Lukas has been abandoned by his father, who claims to be a Tikbalang (half-horse, half-man.) Unbeknownst, his father has taken fancy to a younger woman and is living in a neighboring town. At the same time, people are starting to notice that something is different about Lukas — he can jump higher, run faster, and seems impervious to harm. Mystery upon mystery is interwoven in this unconventional tale narrated by Lukas' love interest, which follows as Lukas becomes a man and his father becomes a memory. Groundbreaking visuals and an innovative soundtrack won Strange the Special Jury Prize at the International Cinema Festival of Lima.
