Making of




Press

Passauer Neue Presse, Germany:

"Holy Spirit" is a film that is jam-packed full of impressions – bizarre, highly charged and original. What Mike Baran, Tom Schuster and their team have created is an eye-popping concoction that is probably best described as a mixture of Bulgakow's "The Master and Margarita", a Bavarian whodunnit and social critique conveyed through psychedelic images.
