Exposure/Whitening footage

Hi community!

During this time I have a lot of questions, one is:

How can I increase the exposure (or color with bright white) the "white" part (the background) only?

This is the footage:

I hope do not use masks and no work frame by frame!

What kind of file is that, I can't get it to open.

You will have to mask some of it if you don't want to change the brightness of the entire frame.

If the shot isn't moving, add an adjustment layer to the seq, mask off loosely the part you want to make brighter and feather the mask. Add a curves adjustment to the adjustment layer and peak the highlights only setting keyframes for the rest of the curve.
