Marilyn's hotel room

The film conjures up the ghost of Marilyn Monroe through a phantasmagoric séance in a suite at the Waldorf Astoria in New York, where she lived in the 1950s. Taken from the point of view of the deceased Marilyn, the film reproduces her presence by means of three algorithms: the camera becomes her eyes, a computer reconstructs the prosody of her voice and a robot recreates her handwriting. The Hollywood icon is carnated in an image that is in fact an automaton, something resembling a human, and yet not quite real.
