Hungry Ghost Diner

The Hungry Ghost Festival is one of several important festival days of Ghost Month - the seventh month of the Chinese lunar calendar. The festival is the setting of the Malaysian film Hungry Ghost Diner, which is a supernatural tale about memory, nostalgia, and commemoration, directed by filmmaker Cho We Jun. The film recently won the prestigious Netpac Award at the 27th Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival, and we catch up with We Jun, and also Lim Benji, the film’s producer, to discuss why they made a Cantonese language film set against the backdrop of the Hungry Ghost Festival during the MCO, while also doing a 101 on the Hungry Ghost Festival.
