Ghost Artist Screens in St. John's

Ghost Artist the documentary film by Steven Palmer, which I had a small research role in, is off to play the MUN Cinema Series in St. John's, NL after successful runs at WIFF and FIN. It also features music from Tobacco Fields in it as well. Hello!

When a revolutionary film about medicine and the body is rediscovered after 50 years in an archival vault, it leads to its uncredited maker, Robert Cordier, still working in Paris at 82. Beyond making 20,000 faint at the Montreal world’s fair, Cordier’s 1967 movie was inspired by an unsung career of collaborations with such legendary figures as James Baldwin, Andy Warhol, Allen Ginsberg, Jean Genet and Salvador Dalí. As Cordier helps to revive the original film, the great storyteller unmasks the film as a remarkable avant-garde creation for the masses, a strategic cross-over with spectacular results.
