Followed by Q&A with director Tim Grabham.
Blending animation, documentary, archive material and fantasy elements, Ghost Amber is a poetic reflection on the slow vanishing of analogue film. Shot in Taiwan, Europe and the UK, a celluloid ghost materialises inside the ruins of a mysterious cinema as the film charts the disappearance of the medium and the places where we watch it. Structured in 4 chapters: The Phantom, The Flesh, The Mutating Canvas and Alchemy this is director Tim Grabham’s debut solo feature (he previously screened experimental short Films to Break Projectors at CINECITY in 2017). A diverse range of film-makers, musicians, choreographers and archivists were involved in the ambitious project; the soundtrack includes contributions from Yetti, AQAXA, Stephen Thrower, Maria Marzaioli and many more.
