About:

Gabrielle Brady is an award winning Australian filmmaker currently living in Berlin. She works with hybrid and performative elements in documentary storytelling. She will use her award winning film Island of the Hungry Ghosts (2018) as a case study to explore the creative possibilities of hybrid documentary filmmaking.

Island of the Hungry Ghosts is a moving portrait of forgotten asylum seekers on Christmas Island tackling a difficult, heavily charged political issue. Rather than bombarding audiences with facts and statistics, the film uses cinematic language that stretches from myth-making and metaphor to observational storytelling, propelling the interwoven stories forward. The film is currently being shown in international film festivals and will have a theatrical release in Europe and Australia in 2019. It has won numerous awards including; Best Documentary at the Tribeca Film Festival, Buyens-Chagoll Award at Visions du Réel, Best Documentary at the Adelaide Film Festival, and a jury special mention at the Edinburgh Film Festival.
