Ghosts of the past, ghosts of the future

Returning to his small hometown in the mountains after more than a decade in the big city, Lao Liu is met by empty houses, deserted streets and – murder. GHOST IN THE MOUNTAINS is another example of independent Chinese filmmakers using classic film noir plots to tell stories about the broader societal issues that define modern China. Featuring beautiful photography and long, lingering takes, Yang Heng's surrealist and poetic tale is a poetic depiction of China's rampant urbanization.
