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.
