“My whole thing with movies, even the best ones, as soon as you see a certain framing you know you’re safe and so’s everybody else. I'm safe as the audience, director, actors—everybody’s safe. But with Ghostbox, I wanted it to feel like at no point is anyone safe. You’re on the same high wire the film is on, grappling with what’s real and isn't.”
