Cannes Film Festival annually screens hundreds of films. You can always expect the best to sail out of her theaters, and into our towns. Cue our newest love: Ismael’s Ghosts.
Ismaël Vuillard is a film about Ismaël and his drive to make films. He is in the middle of one about Ivan, an atypical diplomat inspired by his brother. Along with Bloom, his master and father-in-law, Ismaël still mourns the death of Carlotta, twenty years earlier. Yet he has started his life over again with Sylvia. Sylvia is his light. Then Carlotta returns from the dead. Sylvia runs away. Ismaël rejects Carlotta. Driven mad by these ordeals, he abandons the shoot for his family home in Roubaix. There, he lives as a recluse, besieged by his ghosts.
Watch the trailer now. Ismael’s Ghosts is set to debut state side on March 28, 2018.
** Please note: The final debut is a different cut, than the original screened at Cannes.
