A Month of Hungry Ghosts (2008)
Director: Tony Kern
Plot: Every year, during the 7th lunar month, it is believed that the gates of Hell are opened and all the souls are set free to wander the earth. The film explores how and why a whole nation, world-class and cosmopolitan, is utterly enthralled by A Month of Hungry Ghosts.
Rating: PG for some supernatural themes.
IN RETROSPECT (Spoilers: N/A)
The production is impressive for a local output. It does not feel in any way like the work of amateurs. It is also perhaps one of the most comprehensive documentaries on a local religious festival ever filmed.
