Would you like to have your picture taken by little Beka?
If there’s anything that the horror genre has taught us, it’s that we should never trust children completely – even if they’re as adorable-looking as the Diana F+ CMYK-toting girl named Beka in this short but thrilling Lomokino flick. Sure, a kid wandering about and taking photos on her own will always be a wonderful sight, but Beka keeps a sinister little secret… let’s just say that she gets more than just analogue photographs from her subjects.
“Beka” runs only under a minute, but it’s enough time to deliver the message across and give you the chills – a mark of good storytelling, if you ask me!
Oh, and just in case you’re wondering what almas is, its the Spanish term for souls.
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!
