Title E:Ghost Hunting

by Raed Andoni

France / Switzerland / Palestine, February 2017

To free the demons of his former jail, the filmmaker assembles an eclectic group of Palestinian ex-prisoners in an empty yard. From fragmentary memory, day after day, they give shape to the Israeli interrogation centre they all experienced, and re-enact its stories. As the walls of the cells rise, the tongues and the emotions loosen.
