Rob Ulitski - 10th Aug 2020

James Lawes directs an eerie Lynchian promo for Ruby Black's Lady Death. 

The concept is focussed on three interconnected stories taking place within the same house, punctuated by haunting cutaways and abstract narrative sections. 

This enigmatic chiller unravels slowly and is very much open to interpretation - with plenty of clues to what might be bubbling under the surface.
