Review

Following his previous film Boris Without Beatrice (2016), Denis Cote continues his quest for death in Ghost Town Anthology. The film starts with the death of young Simon from a car rollover accident. After this death, ghosts start to appear in the village. While the villagers are reluctant to talk about the tragedy of Simon and the aftermath of this, Adele starts acting odd. As the ghosts watch us at close quarters, the village watches us in a cold manner. The rhythm of an uncanny shot, away from daily life, produces even greater dizziness. This film focuses on the relationship between visibility and invisibility. Following the threatening aspects of our lives, Denis Cote shows things that were previously invisible, but gradually becoming materialized. Ghosts that were not visible to villagers at first become visible to everyone. Therefore, being invisible does not mean it does not exist. [JANG Byungwon]

DIRECTOR
Denis CÔTÉ
Quebec’s acclaimed director Denis Cote gained international fame through his hybrid genre of poetic narrative and minimalism. He first engaged with Jeonju as Drifting States (2005) won the Woosuk Award and later directed The Enemy Lines (2010) for the Jeonju Digital Project. Cote’s films oscillate between fiction, documentary, and avant-garde. The documentary Bestiaire (2012) traces the lives of cows, radiating a serene beauty. His recent films were introduced in Jeonju: Joy of Man's Desiring (2014) on the labor scene overwhelmed by machine sounds, Boris Without Beatrice (2016) on the existential crisis of a businessman, and A Skin So Soft (2017) on the self-mortifying lives of extreme bodybuilders. The Berlinale-nominated Ghost Town Anthology (2019) portrays the life of a lingering ghost. Cote recently finished his latest film, Wilcox (2019).
