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.
