`I ritualise through a performance to camera the coming to terms with the loss of my partner, Sandra Lahire. A journey of mourning incorporates this staging both for myself and for the camera / audience. The film explores the relationship between the hallucinatory power of the phantom of memory with that of the phantom ingrained in the photograph, film or video.' - S.P.
