The London Australian Film Festival presents the London premiere of Ghosthunter, a remarkable documentary about one man’s struggle to come to terms with his past.
Shot over seven years, the film follows Jason King, a part-time ghostbuster desperately searching for answers about a childhood lost in a haze of half-memories.
What begins as a light-hearted portrait of a man helping others to banish bad spirits from their homes, soon unravels into a real-life horror story, as Jason is forced to confront his own ghosts, both past and present.
Documentarian Ben Lawrence has landed on something special for his feature debut, crafting a haunting and heart-breaking film with more twists and turns than a Hollywood blockbuster, and proving yet again that truth really is stranger than fiction.
“Ben Lawrence’s debut documentary is simply remarkable…a breathtaking achievement.”
– Paul Byrnes (Sydney Morning Herald)
The student short film Hunt For Eagle Rock (Swinburne – d. Thomas Gruevski) will precede the main feature.
