Pu Songling’s timeless story of a star-crossed romance between a human and a ghost has been told numerous times, most famously on-screen in A Chinese Ghost Story (1987). A decade later, producer Tsui Hark retells the story in another form - animation. While working as a rent collector, Ning Choi-sun enters a ghost town by mistake. A young ghost, Shine, has her mind set on taking Ning back to her mistress as her meal, but she ends up falling in love with him. Featuring a star-studded voice cast and spectacular animation, Andrew Chan’s take on the beloved story is one of the most beautiful to date.

Remarks: Post-screening talk will be conducted in Cantonese
