Island of the Hungry Ghosts (12A)

Island of the Hungry Ghosts

Winner of the Best Documentary award at Tribeca, the first feature documentary from Gabrielle Brady is an all-encompassing, lyrical and deeply moving tribunal on inhumanity.

Island of the Hungry Ghosts takes place on the remote and extraordinary Christmas Island. Home to few human inhabitants, it’s famous for one of the world’s largest land migrations – that of 50 million crabs making their voyage to the ocean’s edge – but has a more troubling relationship with human migration, with its jungle hiding Australia’s biggest offshore refugee detention centre. The only connection to the outside world for these asylum seekers is counselor Poh Lin Lee.
