The Lady ParaNorma is a brilliant, ghostly, short animated film by filmmaker Vincent Marcone. The tale of the eccentric Lady ParaNorma, whose sensitivity to the sounds of ghosts has made her an outcast in her hometown, showcases a unique animation style that is both comfortingly realistic while being obviously artistic and hyper-real.

At only four minutes long, to say much more would be to say too much, so instead I’ll just express that, not surprisingly, the story of Lady ParaNorma is a dark and tragic one from one perspective, but actually hopeful and beautiful in yet another regard. All around a hauntingly gorgeous, poetic and impressive short film, worth watching if you have the opportunity.

    You could check over at the film’s Facebook page (, see if they have any details of when or where it’ll screen next.

  2. It looks great, but it’s only 4 minutes long. Where can I see it?
