Lovett's Epic Civil War Dreamscape 'ghost Of Old Highways' To Screen At Atlanta's Landmark Theatre Sep 28

New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Shore Fire Media) 'Ghost Of Old Highways,' a visually stunning short film based on the song of the same name by singer, composer, producer and Georgia native, Ben Lovett, will screen at Atlanta's Landmark Theatre on September 28 from 6:30 to 9:30PM. It is the fourth installment in Lovett's series of "passionate, blockbuster-sized" (My Old Kentucky Blog) collaborations with film directors, interpreting songs from the album Highway Collection. It will be screened among displays of costumes, props and still photography from the shoot by Atlanta-based photographers The Dorn Brothers. The film, directed by fellow Georgian Dan Bush recently premiered at LA's Carmichael Gallery August 10th to a buzzing, capacity crowd.

In the film, Lovett plays a man pursued by an invading army as he hunts down previous versions of himself amidst the purgatory of a fractured consciousness. The expansive script and film was inspired by the song, which Lovett also used as the basis for an entirely new score, bringing the project full circle. Shot on location in North Carolina, the film crew battled rugged landscapes and unpredictable weather atop a 5,000-foot peak near Cold Mountain to capture a surreal look and tone, conjuring a visual language that exists somewhere between Terrence Malick and Frank Miller. "We built a world for 'Ghost Of Old Highways' that exists beyond the edge of the frame, and the art show is an opportunity for people to dive in and swim around in the possibilities of that world" said
Ben Lovett. "It was a new kind of event for a new kind of film."

Inspired by a conversation between Lovett and director Dan Bush ('The Signal,'
Magnolia Pictures), what started as a collaboration for a traditional music video became a much bigger vision for the song's filmic interpretation. "I've never been a part of anything quite like it," said Bush. "We went up a hill to make a music video and came down a mountain with a movie."

During the production, The Dorn Brothers utilized downtime to create a series of portraits based on the song, interpreting different lyrical passages into images. The Dorn Brothers work, along with original costumes designed for the production as well as key props and weapons will be on display.
