Movie Info

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.

Critic Reviews for Ghost Hunting (Istiyad Ashbah)

All Critics (1)

[It's] ultimate point [is] in the nuances -- the surplus of contradictory feelings, the dark humor, the contextualizing, the bodily language, and finally the words. All these make the film's final impact far more complex than one would assume.
