ACT Year-Round: Island of the Hungry Ghosts

    • CSU's ACT Human Rights Film Festival and The Lyric are co-presenting an exclusive screening of the award-winning documentary ISLAND OF THE HUNGRY GHOSTS.

      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 center where thousands of asylum seekers have been locked away indefinitely. Their only connection to the outside world is trauma counselor Poh Lin.
