"Meetings, stories, lots of women and a man looking for a ghost.
I wanted to play with the lights by intensifying the shadows of the actors on and behind the stage to create different shots, universes and stories. The minimalist side of a empty set to give the impression of a dream while maintaining the cold image of winter."
