Today’s featured short is a mesmerizing, black and white video by Colombia-based lomographer kathepalacio!
Hypnotizing would be an appropriate word to sum up this less than a minute-short, “Labyrinth of Dreams,” which immediately brings to mind “Pan’s Labyrinth” by Guillermo del Toro. Its execution was simple, but with the use of her Lomokino, a MACO UP 400 ISO film, and music by Nox Arcana, kathepalacio was able to create a piece that seemingly channels the feeling of entering a labyrinth and encountering a curious creature that inhabits it.
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!
