GHOST HUNTING                                         
by Raed Andoni
Documentary - France, Palestine, Switzerland, Qatar - 2017 - 94min
 
'A DARING AND SHOCKING FILM,
MADE WITH FINE CINEMATIC JUDGEMENT'

Ken Loach
 
In order to confront the ghosts that haunt him, Palestinian director Raed Andoni assembles an eclectic group of ex-prisoners to build a replicate of Al-Moskobiya, Israel's main interrogation centre, where he was himself jailed at age 18. From fragmentary memory, day after day, they give shape to the interrogation centre they all experienced, and re-enact its stories. As the walls of the cells rise, the tongues and the emotions loosen.

THE ROAD TO MANDALAY                                    
by Midi Z
Drama - Taiwan, France, Germany, Myanmar - 2016 - 108min 
 
The human traffickers have a well-established route:  from Burma into Thailand across the Mekong River at Tchilek, along quiet country roads, passing bribed police checkpoints and into Bangkok, where the illegal migrants are on their own.  Lianqing is one of five illegals who travels this route one summer night in 2013; along the way a fellow migrant called Guo is kind to her, and their fates later become entwined. Once in Thailand, Lianqing finds ‘underground’ jobs, saves money and finds out where to buy fake identity papers with the hope of making it to Taiwan. But Guo has different ambitions…

'An indie stalwart’s refined leap into the mainstream... Z has proved that the spirit of the New Taiwan Cinema remains very much alive.'
