The wild bunch, bold cinematic rebels and adventurous films
INDIA | 98 minutes | 2019
Grounded in the Bengali fantasy tradition, two ghost stories attack reality in bizarre and absurd ways. There’s the one about the land surveyor who finds himself prey to a facetious polymorph, and there’s the one about a wandering cook who takes refuge in an abandoned mansion haunted by a colourful female ghost. Make no mistake, Ghost of the Golden Groves is way out there. It’s a cinematic elsewhere in the form of a liberated creative space where the films of Kaneto Shindo, Apitchatpong Weerasethakul and Rick Alverson (Entertainment) collide. Fascinating, giddy and deeply disconcerting.NORTH AMERICAN PREMIERE."... mashes up the genres of horror, science fiction, and drama, into a story that feels unique in its culture and time frame."
