Art film and thriller fans, you might want to check out this black and white thriller by our fellow lomographer ellda!
“Le fils de l’homme,” which translates to “The Son of Man,” is a beautifully- and artfully-shot film that references to the popular painting of the same name by René Magritte not only through the title but also through its central figure. *Ellda* shot her debut Kino flick using Ilford films and we have to say that thrillers are definitely more effective when shot in monochrome. The absence of color not only gives it a somber and mysterious air, but also opens up one’s imagination to come up with practically any scenario. Was that simply paint that the man used to paint his canvas, or blood? See what we mean?
Here in the Lomography magazine we often venture to the community’s Movies section, where we’re able to stumble upon shorts that do not only depict interesting storylines but are also well-executed. The new Kino Stories series aims to put the well-deserved spotlight on these gems, so keep those creative juices flowing and tell us your story! Who knows, you just might get featured in an upcoming installment!
