Don't Look Now But... There Are Ghosts Floating In The Creek

It was nearing the 22nd anniversary of the opening of Dawn, a Spanish cult film written and directed  by José Luis Cuerda, when the city of Albacete, Spain held a film festival with a special tribute to Dawn and its director.  Among the loyal attendees were guerilla designers from Luzinterruptus, a Madrid-based design house known for its spontaneous public lighting designs.  Wanting to pay homage to Dawn and its author/director, Luzinterruptus left a shocker in this town....

Lit bodies floating through Albacete's creek!

As you can imagine, the Floating Ghosts made an impact on festival-goers and citizens of Albacete.  Attracting people to the creek as a meeting place, the spooky floaters created sparks of horror, humor, and most of all a sense of camaraderie and attention to a neglected possibility for gathering - a special spot with a natural creek and water falls.
