Asia 80 Musical : The Celebration | Lan Gio Moi
Ghost of Asia is a celebration of living and of pleasures. The filmmakers imagine a ghost who still lives and wanders around the seashores. At a Thai island, they invited kids – two boys and a girl, to make a movie. The kids are provided with an actor whose function is like a puppet, like a ghost, to perform tasks dictated by them. The film is structured according to the kids’ real-time direction pattern. The actor became their simulated life, their projection of possible things one can do. Made for the Tsunami Digital Short Films project.

Journey with the musicians of the Berlin Philharmonic and their conductor Sir Simon Rattle on a breakneck concert tour of six metropolises across Asia: Beijing, Seoul, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Taipei and Tokyo. Their artistic triumph onstage belies a dynamic and dramatic life backstage.
