Island of the Hungry Ghosts

Island of the Hungry Ghosts; Gabrielle Brady, 2018, versions: SS : eng, fas, fra, zho

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. As Poh Lin and her family explore the island’s beautiful yet threatening landscape, the local islanders carry out their “hungry ghost” rituals for the spirits of those who died on the island without a burial. They make offerings to appease the lost souls who are said to be wandering the jungles at night looking for home. 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 metamorphoses by the unseen decision-making structures.

Sakawa

Sakawa; Ben Asamoah, 2018, versions: SS

There’s a treasure trove of information to be found in the poisonous e-waste in Ghana. It’s a relatively simple matter to open up hard drives and gain access to photos and the personal details of their former owners. Equipped with a name and address, almost anybody can be found online. The film follows Ama, a young mother, who tries to become an internet con artist. A more seasoned scammer tries to teach her the craft, but she doesn’t appear to have much of a knack for it. One Dollar is a master at his craft and knows how to use his fake account to drive men crazy: they fall for the photo of a buxom woman—and for his high-pitched voice. But how much compassion can you expect from someone who is buying €250 worth of fish for his boss every week, while he is only earning €12 a month himself? SAKAWA shows these fraudulent activities from the perspective of Belgian-Ghanaian director Ben Asamoah, who portrays the perpetrators from his own African perspective. Show more

Sheep Hero

Schapenheld; Ton van Zantvoort, 2018, versions: SS : nld

About 10 years ago, filmmaker Ton van Zantvoort got to know Stijn, an idealist with a cheerful, relaxed nature. Stijn is one of the last remaining Dutch shepherds working in the traditional way. We see the shepherd, his sheep and his three loyal dogs crisscrossing nature reserves and farmlands so the herd can graze the land in an eco-friendly way. But nowadays, little remains of the romance and peace that we associate with the centuries-old tradition of sheepherding. Tenders are increasingly hard to acquire—competition from big companies, cheap East European shepherds and smart machinery make Stijn the expensive choice. With the camera in his wake, the shepherd roams across picturesque Dutch landscapes, talking passionately about his inventive approaches to preserving his traditional occupation. But even as he tries so hard to keep his company afloat, the same camera captures how the incessant stress transforms him into an embittered man with a quick temper. Tragicomic conflicts alternate with scenes of beautiful nature and Stijn’s pleasantly chaotic family life. Show more

My Century

Moje století; Theodora Remundová, 2019, versions: OR : ces

My century is a mosaic of stories from the century of our republic in the memories of century-old citizens from the foundation of Czechoslovakia to their / its present day. The ‘small’ fates of the protagonists from the majority of our country’s regions permeate the archival images of major historical events. The documentary is an adventurous search for our national identity – for who we were and who we are. We follow subjective testimonies of 25 century-old living people in the history of our republic. We observe the crucial moments of their personal stories in connection with social changes from the First Republic, through the WW II, 1950s, 1968 and the normalization until the Velvet Revolution. Some social changes significantly changed the direction of the destiny, others adapted. The final mosaic stresses individual experiences, attitudes, opinions, reflects the change of time and touches deeply in connection with a time long gone through the almost miracle of a living century-old man.
