Description:
  Two Mermaids - Silver and Gold - find themselves in the middle of the world of Warsaw dance parties of the ‘80s, vibrant with music, glittering with neon lights and sparkling sequins. They join the musicians of the Figs and Dates band and overnight become the sensation of the capital’s nightlife. Immersed in love and budding passions they forget their true nature for a while. But one single broken heart is enough for the situation to slip out of control...

Director's Statement:

“The Lure” is a genre hybrid. It’s a love story, a musical but also a reverie fantasy horror. An adult fairytale. I was mostly inspired by the kitschy world of big dance hall parties from the Communist era which ended when I was about 12. The weird lost characters, the warm vodkas, the glamour amidst poverty is what my imagination soaked with. Especially that my Mom ran two restaurants during that not-so-belle époque. “The Lure” is also a coming of age story about discovering your feminine side, your sexuality and using it for a sometimes controversial purpose. I was much more inspired by Homer than Disney in terms of a mermaid tale. Also a little bit by Hans Christian Andersen however my mermaids do not wear bras, they do chew on human hearts though."
