[Video] ‘A Ghost Story’ Director Made This “Prequel” When He Was 7



I suppose you could say this year’s film was 30 years in the making.

Filmmaker David Lowery is 36 years old and he’s currently enjoying a whole lot of critical acclaim for A Ghost Story, which he wrote and directed. Ahead of the film’s DVD and Blu-ray release on October 3, it has arrived on iTunes today.

In celebration, distributor A24 has put up for viewing a short film made by Lowery when he was just 7-years-old, which was inspired by Poltergeist. They’ve dubbed the short the prequel to A Ghost Story, and you’ll see why when you give it a watch…

Our own Nathan Steinmetz wrote a glowing review for us recently, noting that A Ghost Story is “neither your average ghost story nor your average film.

Academy Award winner Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara star as a young couple who — after being separated by loss — discover an eternal connection and a love that is infinite.
