Through the experiences of two women in Paris and London, Ghost Dance offers a stunning analysis of the complexity of our conceptions of ghosts, memory and the past… The film focuses on philosopher Jacques Derrida who considers ghosts to be the memory of something which has never been present but which takes us by surprise.
