For Immediate Release:
More than 2 years in the making, Lost Land was confronted with obstacle after seemingly endless obstacle. Technical failures, logistic nightmares, footage loss across continents and even the death of the films musical composer mark the history of this short films production, shot in the summer of 2009. Now, after nearly two years of salvage and re-edits, Lost Land has been completed and mastered for screening and festival circulation.
Lost Land follows, Carter, a bewildered asylum patient in the 1930's, who seeks the source of a mysterious call from his distant, long buried past. As Carter digs deeper and deeper, however, he discovers that some memories are best left buried.
Inspired by the work of H.P. Lovecraft and Algernon Blackwood comes this tale of lost souls, eldritch powers and the madness of horrors long forgotten.
