The Girl Who Married a Ghost

Directed by Sandra Sawatzky
Canada, 2004 (fiction, 83 minutes, colour, English)

Film Description:
"A rich and powerful Native chief lives on a paradise island with his wife and beautiful daughter, Ramona. The chief does not want Ramona to get involved with any of the local men and he'll go to any length to ensure this. But one day, the chief goes too far—he violently attacks a handsome young shaman, Gabriel Raven, for visiting Ramona. An angry Gabriel transforms himself into a spirit and comes to the girl at night, tricking her into running away with him. The next morning Ramona discovers Gabriel is a ghost—a pile of bones on a deserted beach—and that she is pregnant. What is to become of her now?"
