Ghost in the wall departs from an experimental investigation about coincidences, leading quickly towards the blurry and dark world of dreams, ghosts and fears.

It was created and inspired in several travels to Taiwan, where ghosts are omnipresent. The climax is hungry ghost month, when the gate opens and spirits come to take over the human world and mess around like hell. Humans live in function of the ghosts’ desires and lunatic demands and even change their habits and are restricted in their actions.

This works mixes the physical sensations of common panics, nightmares and existential fears with the feeling of living in a very dark place during ghost month where only Pokemon catchers illuminate the blackness of the night.
