North American premiere
New York Film Festival, USA
5 & 6 October 2019
Honoured to have the North American premiere of Double Ghosts as part of the New York Film Festival. Screening in the Projections section curated by Aily Nash and Dennis Lim. Double Ghosts was shown in programme together with work by Luise Donschen, Ryan Ferko and Luke Fowler.
“Inspired by an unfinished film by Chilean director Raúl Ruiz, George Clark’s globetrotting short retraces Ruiz’s ill-fated production from the beaches of Viña del Mar and the port of Valparaiso to the cemeteries of New Taipei City. Framed around a conversation with Ruiz’s widow, the filmmaker Valeria Sarmiento, Double Ghostschannels the spirit of this unrealized project into a poetic reflection on the creative process and the power of influence.” – NYFF
Thanks to British Council for filmmaker’s travel grant to attend the premiere.
