ISLAND OF THE HUNGRY GHOSTS (12A)


Friday 25 October

TICKETED

Located off the coast of Indonesia, the Australian territory of Christmas Island is inhabited by migratory crabs
travelling in their millions from the jungle towards the ocean, in a movement that has been provoked by the full
moon for hundreds of thousands of years.


Poh Lin Lee is a “trauma therapist” who lives with her family in this seemingly idyllic paradise. Every day, she talks
with the asylum seekers held indefinitely in a high-security detention centre hidden in the island’s core, attempting
to support them in a situation that is as unbearable as its outcome is uncertain.


Island Of The Hungry Ghosts is a hybrid documentary that moves between the natural migration and the chaotic
and tragic migration of the humans, which is in constant metamorphosis by the unseen decision-making structures.


Tickets are £5 and can be booked here: Hungry Ghosts
