Ghost Hunting

Istiyad Ashbah

Stíhání démonů

Editing: Gladys Joujou
Producer, Co-producer: Palmyre Badinier (Les films de Zayna)
Color: Colour
Language: Arabic

A group of former Palestinian prisoners from Israel’s Al Moskobiya detention centre enter a large hall. Watched closely by the cameras, they re-enact scenes from their captivity. The re-enactments are both memory and interaction. The resulting reflection on the everyday routine of life in an interrogation facility helps only some of the participants chase away their personal demons.


Palestinian director Raed Andoni (1967) is the founder of the Dar Films and Les Films de Zayna production companies. His previous film Fix Me (2009) was named best documentary and the Sundance Film Festival.
