Phantom Project

Pablo dreams of an acting career. But to be an actor, besides talent, you need a bit of luck. While he waits for his big break, Pablo takes on various jobs. Future doctors use him to practice interviewing a potential patient, and he takes part in group therapy sessions as a substitute. To pay the bills, he also sublets a room in his flat in the suburbs of Santiago. But problems arise when his roommate abruptly moves out. It’s not just the unpaid rent — he leaves several issues hanging over Pablo's head, including a ghost roaming his place. Or could it just be a claustrophobic delusion, a figment of the would-be actor's vivid imagination? After all, the psyche often plays tricks on us. A large part of Roberto Doveris's second feature is set in a place he knows quite well: his own flat. A space that we usually associate with shelter and safety evokes an underlying tension and uncertainty in Phantom Project. The Chilean director, however, knows how to find a good balance, gracefully moving across a light flirtation with horror, through animated interludes, to a somewhat lighter, humorous tone.
