Official synopsis

John, who comes from a large family, is growing up among a community influenced by Chris, a spiritual guide. After receiving a tape from his sister who lives as a recluse, he rediscovers voices and sounds from his past. Memories begin to emerge and Jean decides to follow in Chris' footsteps, on a journey that will take him to Japan, Indonesia and Bulgaria. During this quest, he will discover his father's secret, years after his death.

The programmer’s eye

Both intimate and exposed to the sight of all, musical and visual, fiction and documentary, the film always seems lit by several suns, revealing the different facets of what is and always has been exposed to our eyes and to our senses. “Spectre” is not only a journey around the world, it is also a therapy: through music, its origin and its power. Through images too: those of childhood, encounters and nature.

— Aurélie Oria-Badoc
