In Thai funeral tradition, a coin is placed in the mouth of the deceased before burial. The coin is meant to be the fee for the deceased's journey into the afterlife. But what happens if the coin is removed?
Meat Grinder director Tiwa Moeithaisong returns with the horror film Ghost Coins. High school students Ton and Jack are notorious online for shooting daring videos in which they visit supposedly haunted places and challenge superstitions. As their views grow, so too does the scale of their pranks. For their latest stunt, they drag Ton's younger brother Tor to a graveyard and threaten to handcuff him to a corpse. In a moment of greed, Ton removes the coin from the corpse's mouth and awakens the corpse. The boys run for their lives, but there seems to be no way out of the graveyard.

Kai Ko (Actor)
| Wu Ke Xi (Actor)
| Midi Z (Writer, Director)
Known on the festival circuit for acclaimed dramas like Ice Poison, Taiwan-based Burmese director Midi Z presents his most polished and high-profile film to date in Road to Mandalay, which garnered six nominations at the 53rd Golden Horse Film Awards and won the Fedeora Award for Best Film in the Venice Days section of the 73rd Venice Film Festival. Like his previous films, Mandalay draws on the experiences and struggles of Burmese migrants. Midi Z regular Wu Ke Xi and Kai Ko (You are the Apple of My Eye) play two desperate illegal migrants trying to make a new life in a gritty and unwelcoming Bangkok.
Lianqing (Wu Ke Xi) crosses illegally into Thailand to seek work and a better life. On the journey, she meets fellow migrant worker Guo (Kai Ko), who takes an immediate liking to her. The simple and devoted Guo plans to work in a factory in Bangkok, save up money and eventually return home. Lianqing has set higher goals: she wants to secure papers and become a legitimate worker so that she can one day escape even farther abroad. Despite hard toil and brushes with danger, she determinedly looks ahead for a way out, but harsh reality keeps closing in on both Lianqing and Guo.

Being anonymous is... intoxicating.
Tibetan lama and filmmaker Khyentse Norbu (Vara: A Blessing) delves into the nature of life and self in the intriguingly mystical and thought-provoking narrative film Hema Hema: Sing Me a Song While I Wait. Every 12 years, a ritual takes place deep in the forests of Bhutan. With their identities concealed behind masks, men and women put down their names and pasts, and participate in performances and rituals of death and rebirth. Over 15 days, they revel in the freedom of anonymity, cross unspoken lines and reveal what one does when they're not known. Chinese stars Zhou Xun and Tony Leung Chiu Wai appear in cameo roles.
