Event description

Description

With vivid depictions of witch persecutions and medieval sorcery Benjamin Christensen’s Häxan (The Witches) is a legendary silent horror.

Once banned in the USA and unseen for decades, Häxan (dir: Benjamin Christensen, 1922) blends horror, documentary, animation and woodcuts to paint a lurid picture of witchcraft through the ages. Featuring the director himself as a disturbingly Grinch-like Devil, the film immerses us into a world of torture and superstition while suggesting that witch persecution was a medieval response to mental illness.


For this special PÚCA Festival screening a new score has been created by Dublin-based musician Matthew Nolan who has produced new music for several award winning Irish films including Exile in Hell, Runners and Somewhere Down the Line.

Suitable for 15+
