Fogo Island Film: Island of the Hungry Ghosts

Join Fogo Island Arts for a screening of the film Island of the Hungry Ghosts (Gabrielle Brady, Germany, UK, Australia, 2018, 94 min) as part of Fogo Island Film 2019: Resistance and Resilience. On an isolated island in the Indian Ocean, land crabs migrate in their millions from the jungle to the sea. The same jungle hides a high-security Australian detention centre where thousands of asylum seekers have been locked away indefinitely. 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. Watch the film on Thursday, July 25, at 6:00pm in the Fogo Island Inn Cinema; free & all are welcome.
