Two time Golden Globe® nominee, Michael Imperioli (ABC's "Detroit 1-8-7") makes his directorial debut with a gripping tale of derailing adults drowning in the struggles of New york City life.
Director, Michael Imperioili
Michael Imperioli is best known for his portrayal of Christopher Moltisanti on the acclaimed HBO series "The Sopranos," for which he won a Best Supporting Actor EMMY Award and was nominated for a GOLDEN GLOBE. As a writer, Michael has worked for Dimension and penned the screen adaptation of Mario Puzo's OMERTA for Miramax. He also wrote and executive produced SUMMER OF SAM. Working on the New York stage for over a decade, Michael has produced, directed and acted. THE HUNGRY GHOSTS marks Michael's debut as a writer/director, and was written with many of his favorite actors and colleagues in mind.
Starring fellow 'Sopranos' star Steve Schirripa
The film, which had its world premiere at the Rotterdam International Film Festival, stars Steve Schirripa (Open Season 2, HBO's "The Sopranos"), Aunjanue Ellis (Men of Honor), Nick Sandow (Swimfan), Sharon Angela (HBO's "The Sopranos"), and newcomer Emory Cohen.
Named after a Buddhist metaphor for the insatiable desires of those incapable of appreciating their own surroundings, THE HUNGRY GHOSTS provides a riveting examination of the complex human condition. Viewers are introduced to the intertwining stories of five struggling New Yorkers overpowered by their thirst for mental, physical or spiritual fulfillment. Schirripa plays the lead role of "Frank", a gambling, drug addict father who is unable to connect with his son.

About The Hungry Ghosts
Five New Yorkers — of different ages, races, backgrounds — hunger for sensual, emotional and spiritual fulfillment. Their intersecting and colliding paths reflect the zeitgeist of our times, in which the desperation of the West smacks up against the religious teachings of the East.
