Documentary on Trauma- ‘Ghosthunter’

Ghosthunter is the story of a western Sydney security guard and part-time ghost hunter who has spent two decades searching for his absent father. As a survivor of trauma, he seeks to reconcile his fractured memories and piece together his past. When his search converges with a police investigation, a family secret is exposed — forcing him to confront a brutal past in order to reclaim his future.

The film was produced with assistance from Good Pitch Australia  (funders of social impact documentaries) and has been recognised as unusual documentary in that it captures the long trajectory of the effects of trauma, making it of interest to people working in the community sector.

You can read more about Ghosthunter on the film site or in this article by ProBono Australia.

It is available to watch now on iTunes or can be purchased on DVD and will be screened on SBS later this year.
