It’s been said a woman lives in the building. There, among the ghosts.
Welcome takes a ghost hunter to a place he never expected to go. It isn’t just the building. It isn’t just the ghost.
When the man wanders in with a camera, hoping to, as he says, “have a story to tell in the pub,” he gets more than he bargained for. He gets too close.
The film is melodic and measured, a sweet and surprising mosaic of the sublime, the profound and the wholly unexpected.
“Why did I come to this place,” the man mutters after he sees something shocking at the bottom of a stairway.
Not a ghost but a corpse. A body that looks remarkably like his.
The soothing voice of a missing young woman, now found and accounted for, smiles and calmly directs Del Miller past his surprise and his shock.
As if she’s done it before. “Would you like to walk in the park?” she asks.
Perhaps, he thinks, and takes her hand. Welcome warms the heart while piercing the mind. Frightens yet reassures. Just what is this abandoned building, really?
