script: the ghost
3 ingredients to raise a ghost:
one death, one house in the hills, and a lot of fog
September 2011, we came here for one year and we are starting our second year.
Our house swap ended and we didn't find any place to rent. Soon, a friend offered us the house of her mother-in law, located way up in the hills of Berkeley, in the fog.
At that period I found out that Graham Leggat, director of the San Francisco Film Society who welcomed me so warmly when I first arrived, died.
At first I felt sadness...
Then Graham entered furtively in my thoughts, in my ideas and the ghost was born...
In that house I wrote the first draft of the project called "Yes in dead" (*play on words with Yes indeed).
A few months earlier my three sons agreed to be the main characters of the movie, that I have no clue what it's going to be like.
They don't know what they committed to; me neither!
