Ghost Children, presents seven reminiscences of early childhood, read in seven different voices, as the camera presses close against the faded dye and exaggerated grain of family photographs from the early 1980s. Whose faces and memories are those ? The film encourages the audience to interrogate assumptions about gender, memory, performance, and death.
