Festival Tip

Island of the Hungry Ghosts

Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean – sounds like a great place for a vacation, a beautiful natural setting where you can watch thousands of migrating crabs. But for thousands of people, the island is the site of their involuntary detention. Australia is using this sparsely inhabited island far from the mainland to hold undocumented migrants, and nobody has any real idea as to what kind of conditions they live in. The little that a psychotherapist who is helping the detainees has seen definitely does not look like paradise.
