Up and coming filmmaker Alex Boskovich showcases the Lomo'Instant Wide in her new film.
Who would have thought that our Lomo'Instant Wide would one day become a movie star? And if so, who would have thought it would get the lead in a movie called, of all things Polaroid Kingdom? Despite the misleading title, the film has nothing to do with the brand Polaroid but simply turns the mysterious magic of instant photography into an art heavy film with minimal dialogue that falls in the horror genre. The film uses instant photography to tell the chilling story of the bond between sisters from beyond the grave as one family grapples with the death of their youngest daughter.
Created by Alex Boskovich and Max Seiler, the film puts us in the headspace of what it’s like to be and to perceive death as a child, how to honor the memory of the joy that once lived, showing us the flaws in ourselves and how we understand and cope with sudden loss.
The Lomo'Instant Wide plays a key role in the film, allowing memories to preserved and created. Using the flash as a means of jump scare and horror.
