Fantasma offers a refreshing interpretation of the strict theatricality of premieres in the cinema itself. Vargas, the protagonist of Alonso’s previous film, Los Muertos (2004), stars in this film as himself, this time wandering through halls and cinemas in Buenos Aires, waiting for the premiere of the film he appears in. Inanimate encounters with different characters moving in space like ghosts fill the film’s space, which takes place in a dimension detached from any fixed framework of time and place.
