Editorial Reviews

The title and the narrative are taken from the 1897 autobiography of Elizabeth d'Esperance, a materializing medium who could produce full body apparitions. We discover a lonely little girl who can conjure imaginary friends that appear, to her, completely real. This remarkable ability causes her much suffering, for upon reaching adolescence, she is diagnosed as mad on account of seeing people who are not there. Only later does she find a way to cultivate her gifts within the spiritualist movement. Here we get inside the experience of the medium as a kind of mental ""projector"" conjuring up specters that interact with the sitters at a seance. At the same time the film explores the psychological underpinnings of this psychic projection, founded on a deep ambivalence around the role of women. The female medium was considered an especially suitable conduit to the next world because of her ""passive nature"". Yet she produced phantoms that radically transgressed her Victorian upbringing through an extraordinarily exhibitionistic sexuality. The film traces this complex interaction between the birth of cinema in relation to both conjuring and mediumship. My phantoms are drawn from magic lantern slides, glass negatives and early cinema footage. Indeed some of the scenes themselves are stereoscopic reconstructions of films from the 1890's. Note: the DVD is not in 3D. For a public screening in 3D 16mm contact zoe@zoebeloff.com
