CLEO (Malaysia) - - PRESS PLAY -

It’s the 1890s in colo­nial Malaya and a young Chi­nese woman, Li Lan, hopes for a favourable mar­riage. But when a pro­posal come along, it’s not what she had hoped for. The wealthy fam­ily who has sent in their re­quest for her hand in mar­riage wants her to marry their dead son who be­gins to shadow Li Lan in her mir­ror and her dreams. Set in the world of the Chi­nese af­ter­life, with its par­al­lel ghost cities and mon­strous bu­reau­cracy, The Ghost Bride is based on a his­toric cus­tom amongst the Chi­nese in Malaysia called a spirit mar­riage.
