In Different Ghosts brings together time travel memoir and archival film footage to explore the force of imagination on lived experience and examines what grows in a twenty year absence. Consider what you would say to your alternate selves, the yous that walk around in the what if and the if only. Can a phantom be a comfort, can you convene and plot with your ghosts?
