Sarah Winchester, opéra fantôme, Bertrand Bonello, France, 24', OV (Francais) with subtitles in English and Spanish

An opera ballet that doesn't exist. A ghost-like piece, played in Opera Bastille and danced at Opera Garnier. An almost mystical link between both scenes. A musician is testing sounds in Bastille's pit. The choir are taking their place in the rehearsal studio. Both sides are fine tuning the work in progress of an opera ballet: Sarah Winchester, her grief, her madness, her home and her ghosts. 

Bertrand Bonello (Nice, 1968) , who competed in the Official Selection with the eagerly awaited Nocturama, has alternated shorts and features throughout his career. Zabaltegi-Tabakalera will see the screening of Sarah Winchester, opéra fantôme, a hybrid of historical essay and ghost story premiered at the FID Marseille. Bonnello has also composed the soundtrack.
