Hermetica Komhata HK320

From 1941 to 1943, Dr. Joseph H. Stanislaw produced a science fiction film with which he intended to disclose his theories and research concerning the study of the influence of cosmic emanations on the human mind, through his experiments with a film of Ectoplasmic sensitivity.
The story of this unique scientist and his unreleased film (Sadly destroyed by Soviet authorities during the siege of Leningrad )
It seemed lost forever …
Until 1965 when some of the most important pieces of his invaluable legacy were found in the depository of Kresty prison. Now at last, after a painstaking restoration, and thanks to the magic of cinema’s science,
We are going to travel into a utopian world where all his theories have been implemented.
