This Strasburg Film Festival feature takes the term “Ghosting” to another level. Marriage With Ghost, by Taiwan student He Mei-E is a story about a Taiwan traditional Ghost marriage ceremony culture – If anyone picks up the red envelope of the Ghost bride, he would have to marry her as his bride.
The reality of the ghost marriage ceremony is so very bizarre, so the director created this short film to express their imagination for the marriage.
Here’s some additional background, pulled from Wikipedia, about the Ghost marriage ceremony culture.
In Chinese tradition, a ghost marriage (Chinese: 冥婚; pinyin: mínghūn; literally: “spirit marriage”) is a marriage in which one or both parties are deceased. Other forms of ghost marriage are practiced worldwide, from Sudan, to France since 1959 (see Levirate marriage, Ghost marriage in Sudan and Posthumous marriage).
