First Reformed

Lustmord has provided the original score for Paul Schrader’s latest movie First Reformed, co-produced by Killer Films.

First Reformed is a film about spiritual life starring Ethan Hawke as the minister of a small, historical and empty church. An ex-military chaplain, Toller (Hawke) is tortured by the loss of a son he encouraged to enlist in the armed forces. As Toller struggles with his faith, he is further challenged after a young couple, Mary (Amanda Seyfried) and her radical environmentalist husband Michael, come to him for counseling. Consumed by thoughts that the world is in peril and motivated by the church’s lack of action, Toller embarks on a perilous self-assigned undertaking with the hope that he may finally restore the faith and purpose he’s been longing for in his mission to right the wrongs done to so many.

The movie premiered at the Venice Film Festival on August 30 and will also screen at both Telluride and Toronto film festivals for release at a later date.



Lustmord will perform at Maschinenfest for the second time in October 2017.

The festival runs from the 27th to 29th at the Turbinenhalle in Oberhausen, Germany.
