DHARMA Logo featured in the film

Part of the alternate reality game the Lost Experience, the Sri Lanka video was filmed by Rachel Blake in Sri Lanka and the footage contains a DHARMA Initiative film dating back to 1975 starring Alvar Hanso, as well as instructions from Dr. Thomas Werner Mittelwerk to Hanso Foundation members about a new project, and about how the DHARMA Initiative failed.


Throughout the summer between the dates of July 22 and September 8, "glyphs" or "fragment codes" were released on various websites, and also on podcasts and even in real life. The fragments were the Sri Lanka video, divided into 70 different segments. Throughout the summer, it was the task of the public to discover these glyphs and organize them on
