Sundance 2017: Pillow Talk with A Ghost Story — Full Interview

We’re getting up close and personal with a twist. We’re in bed with the director, writer, and producer of “A Ghost Story” at the Sundance Film Festival 2017. Join us as we talk to David Lowery and Toby Halbrooks about their work on the film. We’ll also be picking his brain for thoughts on what’s next in storytelling and the experiences for viewers.

About “A Ghost Story”
Lauded filmmaker David Lowery, last at the Festival with the lyrical Ain’t Them Bodies Saints (2013), reunites with his collaborators for a haunted tale like no other—one conceived in secret and fueled by the spirit of pure, creative expression.

Lowery’s meticulously sparse narrative contemplates a spectral figure who was once a man (Casey Affleck). Prematurely taken from this Earth, he makes his way toward his former home, where he is fated to remain forevermore. Shrouded in a white sheet, he observes the lament of his grief-stricken lover (Rooney Mara). Bearing unseen witness to her pain, the wisp stands sentry for years to come, interacting only with time as it hurtles further and further forward, the remnants of his humanity quietly evaporating.

Making full use of his singular abilities as a visual storyteller and finely tuned craftsman, Lowery boldly returns with an enriching experiment in micro-cinema that gorgeously defies categorization.
