Sarah Winchester, opéra fantôme Regie Bertrand Bonello
The opera they rehearse is one that will never be performed; Kateb announces mid-film that the opera does not exist. This reorients our relationship to its artistic components… Before the final display of Gillot’s precise, constricted movements, Kateb directs her: “Do the solo in your head.” The substance of history is absent by design, so we must build upon the conjecture.

Like Sarah Winchester, who is haunted by guilt, the image of the dancer is haunted by herself. She becomes a phantom, an appearance. The same is true for the story of Winchester, which takes place in the bodies and voices of artists. Cinema may not enter those bodies and those bodies may not enter Sarah Winchester’s story. It is due to the impossibility of entering that a different view is possible, one that adds regimes of sensuality and aesthetics to the narration.

Bonello, master of mood, advances through several tonal and conceptual registers simultaneously here. Showing us figures entering and filling up one physical space while bluntly acknowledging a death toll from the history books might seem a simple enough juxtaposition, but when we cut back to Kateb’s Mac-bound composer inside the Bastille, and the camera tilts up from him to the gods, there’s a palpable sense of something grander at play.
