Castlemaine – Island of the Hungry Ghosts

19 July 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

The documentary ‘Island of the Hungry Ghosts’ will be screened as part of the Castlemaine Documentary Film Festival, on Friday 19 July at 1.30 pm. The film interweaves three narratives – trauma counselling given to the detainees in the Christmas Island detention centre, the honouring of their ancestors by the Chinese residents of the island, and the annual red crab migration on the island. Alex Kelly, one of the film’s producers, Chris Cummins, author of Dignity in a Teacup, and Janet Galbraith, convenor of Writing Through Fences will be in attendance for a Q&A following the film.
