„Lutz“ is an experimental documentary about Lutz Mommartz-not so much the person, but rather the filmmaker and his working methods.

Mommartz was one of the most important German experimental filmmakers of the 1970s, winning the German Film Prize in 1977 and 1978. However, in the 1990s he fell into a creative crisis. He subsequently disappeared from cinema screens and with him his style of filmmaking. A style which unmasks interpersonal relationships better than any Dogma-film.

2009 the Museum of Modern Art in New York purchased four of his films.
