Description

On Christmas Island, in the Indian Ocean, red earth crabs migrate millions from the jungle to the sea. The jungle itself hides a high-security Australian detention center where thousands of asylum seekers have been locked up indefinitely. Their only connection to the outside world is the trauma therapist Poh Lin Lee. While he and his family explore the beautiful landscape of the island, the natives perform their "hungry ghosts" rituals for the spirits of those who died without a burial. They bid to appease the lost souls who are said to be wandering in the jungle at night in search of a home.

The film, developed in 2015 as part of the Feature Expanded project of The Screen of the Art Film Festival and HOMEmcr, won the Tribeca Film Festival in 2018.

Among others, many, many awards Island of the Hungry Ghosts recently won 5 awards at the Australian Independent film awards: best movie, best director (Gabrielle Brady), best editor (Katharina Fiedler), best sound design (Leo Dolgan) and best cinematography (Michael Latham).

"As I write, there are people I met years ago on Christmas Island, who are still living in one of Australia's three offshore immigration centers - without knowing when, or if, they will ever be released. law is illegal to arrive by boat in Australia and seek refugee status.Those who attempt the journey are either intercepted at sea by the Navy and towed to the country from which they arrived, or brought to one of these three remote islands and detained indefinitely. " (Gabrielle Brady)
