In a not-so-distant surrealist future, a demented scientist unable to dream steals the dreams of young children so that he may stave off aging and subsequent death. In order to procure these dreams Krank employs a bio-mechanical kidnapping cult that grabs young children and houses them on a remote ocean rig (hence The City of Lost Children). But when carnival strongman and former Russian sailor named One (Ron Perlman) seeks to find his kidnapped brother, along with the help of a little orphan girl, he fights brings the whole operation down. Made by the same creators of Delicatessen and Amelie, The City of Lost Children invokes an entirely different world; one with a talking brain housed in a tank, clones, conjoined twins, and a circus performer with trained fleas.

Formed in 2012, Black Lodge is a collective of musicians led by guitarist/composer Geoff Gersh. They perform original scores to silent and non-silent films.
To date, they’ve scored close to two dozen films ranging from silent films like Phantom of the Opera and Metropolis to modern films such as Tron, Eraserhead and Valhalla Rising. They combine elements of textural ambient soundscapes with rock & metal to create unique scores that still respect the vibe of the film, but offer a different sonic and emotional, experience for the viewer.
For The City of Lost Children, Black Lodge will be presented as a trio consisting of guitar, bass and drums serving up their blend of ambient textures with a side of heaviness.
