Thanks Clover Flims for inviting me to the movie gala of Hungry Ghost Ritual held at Golden Village Grand, Great World City. We were invited for a cocktail session before the movie screening.
Hungry Ghost Ritual《盂兰神功》is Nick Cheung’s directorial debut, starring talented Taiwanese actress Annie Liu 刘心悠 and himself. The movie tells the story of a Cantonese opera troupe that is harassed by malicious spirits ten days before the Hungry Ghost Festival, also known as Yu Lan Jie 盂兰节. Footages from the CCTV, installed by Zonghua (by Nick Cheung), affirm his suspicions.
Who are these spirits and what exactly are they after?
Watch the trailer:
