The Phantom's Vacation
by Jean-Robert Thomann

Each summer in Taiwan, the doors to the phantom world open: wandering souls descend to Earth and vacation. For a month, rituals, offerings and traditional plays give rhythm to daily life. ‘The phantoms’ vacation’ reveals to us Huwei, a little Southern village where the inhabitants sacrifice in the grand ritual of Zhongyuan Pudu to grant peace to the wandering spirits.
