Raed Andoni's highly original and harrowing documentary feature won the Silver Bear for 'Best Documentary' at the 2017 Berlin Film Festival.
Recreating the infamous Al-Moskobiya, Israel’s main interrogation centre, where he was himself jailed at age 18, Andoni gathers together of fellow survivors to recreate and confront their own experiences of incarceration and torture.
A powerful hybrid of documentary, fiction and experimental art film interspersed with lyrical and beautifully rendered animated sequences, Ghost Hunting is a unique and uncompromising work. The film also gives us space to reflect on the ethics and meaning of the re-enactment unfolding before us, and on the complicity of both the filmmaker and the viewer themselves.
“A daring and shocking film, made with fine cinematic judgement.” Ken Loach
“A major cinematic achievement, powerful and compelling.” Mike Leigh
