Our featured LomoKino flick of the day is not only entertaining but educational, too!
“Shadow Play” is a work by maria_vlachou of Kastoria, Greece that was filmed entirely in black and white using Ilford XP2 films. With the use of shadow puppets, she depicts a well-known tale of Karagiozis, a fictional character of Greek folklore, called “Alexander the Great and the Accursed Snake.” Now, at this day and age, this style is something we definitely don’t see everyda!
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!
