and we are constrained to a greater degree by situations
and circumstances beyond our control. Luhrenloup sees her task
in working with individuals as helping them to tap into psychic energies
within self that are beyond the bonds of society, that free one from the mold
society moves us in. Ultimately, it's about power,
how to become cognizant of the power and energy one can marshal
to achieve success in one's career, to enrich relationships,
to achieve joy and well being.
On a frenzied night in the sixties, the Beatles promised each other that when one of them would
die, he would send a message to the others from the hereafter.
It has been 26 years since John Lennon's death and Paul McCartney once said that he is still waiting for a
message from him.
In order to facilitate this event, Gianni Motti organized a seance with the seeress LuhrenLoup. To absorb his
spirit this medium with paranormal powers made spiritual pilgrimages to places that John Lennon frequented
when alive. She visited the Dakota apartment building and Strawberry Fields in Central Park.
The seance to invoke to spirit of John Lennon happened on March 30, 2006 at Metro Pictures in New York and
lasted approximately 40 minutes. Important revelations were made to the medium, among them that Lennon
would appear (express himself) soon in the space of the gallery.
Infrared cameras were installed in the rear gallery where the seance took place, to try to capture any sign of
the spirit of John Lennon. The live video is projected in the front gallery and a video of the seance itself is
projected in the front gallery and a video of the seance itself is projected in the side gallery.
Pedro Suarez, a film student at NYU, after seeing Luhrenloup's website, approached her about making a documentary about her life and work. Specifically, he wanted her to give someone a reading in the film. Once Luhren met him and saw that he was intelligent with a true creative nature, she agreed, with one stipulation: the client had to be real, with real questions, otherwise it wouldn't work.
Maggie the film's sound technician, agreed to do it. Herself an NYU film student, she had questions about her chosen profession, about money, possible success and love. They came on Saturday morning, four of them in Luhren's little studio, with lots of black bags full of equipment, and backpacks with more, and they set to work. Luhrenloup told the crew that since no meeting is an accident, the five were connected in some way, and because of the nature of their mutual efforts on the film, Maggie's reading would speak to all of them.
Intercut within the reading, are scenes of Pedro interviewing Luhren about her craft, how she came to it, its meaning in her life, about Tarot cards, witches, psychic energy, and many other topics.
