The Ghostlight Project is a group of five artists working together to uncover fragments of old silent films that never existed.

Every week begins with a film fragment, each artist then bringing a new aspect of the story to light on the days that follow, taking inspiration from the previous elements in a work of ongoing improvised collaboration.

Until the week ends, and a new film is discovered.
