"What, and how, is a ghost? Pere Ginard gathers in his daily life a series of comical and lyrical ghostly appearances, and as a researcher of paranormal events, he registers and categorizes them. The super 8 camera as a spectral catalyst and microscope." - Elena Duque on 13 (recorded) apparitions of her ghost at Mostra de Cinema Periférico, A Coruña, Spain. “What is a ghost? (...)

Revision // reinterpretation // stark rewriting of the Bogeyman tales. The Bogeyman is a common allusion to a mythical creature in many cultures used by adults to frighten children into good behavior. This monster has no specific appearance, and conceptions about it can vary drastically from household to household within the same community; in many cases, he has no set appearance in the mind of an adult or child, but is simply a non-specific embodiment of terror. Film, concept, animation, montage, sound design: Pere Ginard Expired Super8mm Film & Found-Footage / 4:3 / Spain / 3min / 2016 world premiere: 13 january | Museum of the Moving Image, NYC screenings: Crossroads 2017 | San Francisco Museum of Modern Art 8ª Mostra de Cinema Periférico | A Coruña, Spain EXIS 2017 | Seoul, Korea Michael Sicinski on This Bogeyman at First Look Festival at The Museum of the Moving Image, NYC, January 2017: "(...) This Bogeyman from Spain’s Pere Ginard, resists in a completely unique way. The film refuses to give final form to our fears. Starting out with a throbbing black square, the Super 8 film rapidly mutates to include light spikes, found footage, and other gestures of shock. Their very plurality emphasizes the obvious—it’s only a movie—and turns fright into child’s play." Published in January 2017 at MUBI Notebook "On Resistance" at First Look 2017.

Métamorphoses du Papillon
"Recalling the works of Joseph Cornell, Pere Ginard’s films and collages explore early cinema, home movies and childhood. Concluding with a citation of French cinematic pioneer Gaston Velle’s 1904 film of the same name, Ginard’s darkly celebratory film presents an impressionist vision of rebirth and transformation." Steve Polta, San Francisco Cinematheque.
