A CLOSE UP (filmmakers-in-person) series
FREE screening of a work in progress
A film script is an unfinished work, a ghost that seeks to inhabit a form. Where do the characters that are conceived for years, but that fail to find their bodies in an image, reside? This film attempts to materialize their presence in New York City.
