Relation Lost is a short experimental film directed by Johnathan Paul.
The film tells the story of two young sisters and their strong relationship and shows the demise of that relationship when the younger sister is kidnapped and killed leaving the older sister alone with grief. The film is loosely based on a true story.
This film explores the art of cinematography and the use of image and sound to elicit emotion from the audience. The villain of the film is never seen in full focus and much of the film plays like a dream, this harks back to the reaction of the individual left behind who said that the experience felt much like a dream and that the ordeal is only a nightmare that she will one day wake from when she and her sister a reunited.
Produced for the completion of the Bachelors of Fine Art program at the University of North Texas.
