Our featured Lomokino movie for today is on the supernatural side. Have a look at freakoftheweek’s awesome work!
“The Lost Heart of the Ghost Lady” by *freakoftheweek* is made in the same vein as old silent films with its monochromatic and grainy treatment, intertitles, and instrumental music. It follows the story of a woman who navigates her way around The City of the Damned in search of her missing heart. To create his film 03:20-long film, freakoftheweek used up three rolls of Lady Grey Film. He brilliantly re-imagined his bustling city and its residents to fit his concept, giving places elaborate yet witty names such as The Hall of the Death and The Tavern of the Ghosts, even introducing a minor character called the Rickshaw Driver of the Lost Souls!
