Second Run to release Raed Andoni’s ‘GHOST HUNTING’ on Blu-ray & DVD this September!

Second Run will release Raed Andoni‘s highly original and harrowing documentary feature, GHOST HUNTING (Istiyad Ashbah) – winner of the Silver Bear for ‘Best Documentary’ at the 2017 Berlin Film Festival – on region free Blu-ray and DVD on 28 September 2020.

Recreating the infamous Al-Moskobiya prison, Israel’s main interrogation centre, where he was himself jailed at age 18, Andoni gathers together fellow survivors to recreate and confront their own experiences of incarceration and torture.

A powerful hybrid of documentary, fiction and experimental art film, interspersed with lyrical and beautifully rendered animation sequences, GHOST HUNTING is a unique and uncompromising work from the Palestinian filmmaker.

The film also gives us space to reflect on the ethics and meaning of the re-enactment unfolding before us, and to question the complicity of both the filmmaker and the viewer themselves.

Special Features:

• Presented from a brand new HD master of the film.

• An interview with director Raed Andoni filmed at the 2017 International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam.

• Booklet featuring new writing on the film by writer, curator and producer Gareth Evans.

• Original soundtrack 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio and 2.0 Stereo LPCM (24-bit)

• Region free Blu-ray (A/B/C) and DVD (‘0’) editions.
