Lore Review - Independent Cinema [VIFF 2012]

Independent Cinema writes - As a society, we have a hard time letting go of preconceived notions. The idea of someone being something more or less than what we were told ends up bewildering more so than enlightening, with World War II arguably being the best example.

The trick now is being able to step away from a generalization and look at each person individually, deciding for yourself who is bad and who is good. Lore is a story of just that: breaking away from previously held convictions, and trying to find yourself in a world that has so radically changed.
