ER IS EEN GEEST VAN MIJ
netherlands, PERU / experımental / 6' / 2021
An attempt at mourning both personal and political futures that never arrived, organised around a broad interpretation of the trope of the ghost. We see depersonalised figures, urban ruins, consuming fires and microscopic images of decaying bodily matter; footage was shot in Washington DC, Lima and Amsterdam. Issues like failed neoliberal promises of progress, the rise of fascism, and self-image and adulthood are brought together, set to a poem that shifts between Spanish and Dutch.
