Turin, 1909. Cesare Lombroso, the world-famous founder of the School of Criminal An-thropology, arrives at the isolated mansion of Lazar, an elderly illusionist. Lombroso, at-tracted to Spiritualism, challenges Lazar: to prove that the supernatural exists and that it may be the cause of a heinous crime.
What could have unleashed the murderous fury in the young seminarian Tommaso and what binds him to the paranormal faculties of Lazar and his son Lorenzo? Is it illusionism or is there something real?
The ancient and decadent house of Lazar hides many truths and Lombroso's scientific vi-sion will have to open up to new perspectives.
Larvae is an independent short film that moves between science, doubt and mysterious forces. Inspired by the real historical figure, the famous and infamous, the celebrated and reviled Cesare Lombroso, who even wrote a paper released after his death in 1909 entit-led “Research on Hypnothic and Spiritualistic phenomena”. But that's not all.
Larvae tell us about the dark side, the inexplicable and the consequenc-es of human feelings.
