The Art of Living Well: Island of the Hungry Ghosts

The Art of Living Well: Island of the Hungry Ghosts
One Night Only! Sunday, December 1

  • 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 of the animals and the chaotic and tragic migration of the humans, which is in constant metamorphoses by the unseen decision-making structures.

This film is a part of Hopewell Theater's ongoing series, The Art of Living Well, featuring inspiring films, speakers and interactive discussions exploring ways of cultivating serenity, meaning and a deeper connection to one’s self and the world.
