Ghost is a one of a kind shortfilm filmed in an art piece in the vaults of Phoenix Central Park
In the year 2067 humankind has all but departed earth. A woman isolates on the new colony for the duration of her pregnancy. _____
Following the release of his popular poetry anthology DKMH, Stranger Things star Dacre Montgomery has turned his focus to narrative filmmaking, creating his second short film in the evocative confines of the Phoenix. He writes "Phoenix seems to be the last bastion for art and artist alike. When I encountered the passerine's ovum, I saw it as opportunity to rise from ash. It was only fitting to landscape GHOST against this subterranean capsule". In this compelling reimagining of a room at Phoenix affectionately known as "The Egg", an underground concrete void usually home to exquisite artwork from Judith Neilson's collection, Dacre tells a story of entrapment, longing and ultimately hope. _____
