Project for Arena Media

The second feature film from writer/director Alena Lodkina, PETROL follows Eva, a naïve and idealistic film student who befriends a charismatic performance artist named Mia.

As the two women move in together and their lives become more entwined, Eva begins to feel haunted by an otherworldly presence. In her quest to understand her new friend, Eva sets off on a surreal journey of awakening, haunted by dreams, fantasies and ghosts. Produced by Kate Laurie.

The Post Lounge completed colour grading, online and mastering and delivery as well as provided the editorial systems and facilities.
