Monika Treut, the noted director of provocative films such as Seduction: The Cruel Woman, Female Misbehavior and Gendernauts, returns with a mysterious love story set in Taiwan and Germany.

In Ghosted, German artist Sophie is trying to come to terms with the unsolved murder of her Taiwanese lover Ai-Ling. After a run-in with the seductive Mei-Li, a journalist investigating Ai-Lingís death, Sophie flees back to Germany. But when Mei-Li turns up on her Hamburg doorstep, the mystery deepens

INCLUDES BONUS FILM: Monika Treutís documentary Tiger Women Grow Wings looks at three Taiwanese women from different generations (famed opera singer Hsieh Yue-hsia; award-winning novelist Li Ang; and filmmaker Chen Ying-rong) against the backdrop of the radical changes taking place in modern-day Taiwan.
