A Ghost Eats Mud on the Mountain
Directed by: Richard Forbes-Hamilton
Production/School: Richard Forbes-Hamilton
A Ghost Eats Mud on the Mountain is an abstract journey set against a backdrop of spaces in Hong Kong. The spaces navigated through the film seem to sit outside of time and place; somewhere in between past and future, nature and urban space, myth and document. The only apparent inhabitants of this world are an indistinguishable figure and a buffalo. If the film suggests a transitional realm or liminal space, then the youth and the buffalo are of this same realm. The artist’s navigation of these scenes could be considered equivalent to the suggested experience of the protagonists. The film is solely produced and scored by artist Richard Forbes-Hamilton created utilising a combination of photography and digital animation techniques.
