Short description : An introspective work exploring the psychological relationship of the video artist and the ghostly figure of her grandmother who she never met, Elena Laserna Pinzón (1910-1943). Shot in the colonial home that once belonged to her grandmother's family in Colombia, Courbon attempts to evoke a portray of her beloved ancestor by revisiting the house and diving into a personal journey through the use of visual poetry.
