Festival of Hungry Ghosts

The month-long festival of hungry ghosts have begun in Singapore.  This is one of the most amazing and yet locally feared times of the year, when Chinese-Singaporeans believe that ghosts and spirits of the Under World drop by the human world and wander around.  Many ceremonies and rituals are held to appease and entertain them.  A wonderful documentary made in a most entertaining manner has been made.  Trailers are found here:

This is a great time for photographers and anthropologists to visit Singapore too!
