Witchcraft Through the Ages (aka Häxan)
This unique silent film is a semi-documentary exploring the Church’s persecution of witches from the 15th through the 17th centuries—via vivid re-enactments of cases and purported incidents, like the Witches’ Sabbath.
The Haunted Cinematheque
Sweden, 1922, Benjamin Christensen
A huge hit among 1920s Surrealists, the film boasts stunning tableaux that evoke Bosch and Bruegel. We will show a recent restoration of the original version of this movie classic (with a newly recorded, authentic orchestral score) and not the jazzy 1967 re-release narrated by William S. Burroughs. “A weird and rather wonderful brew…Remarkable visual flair.” –Time Out Film Guide. Subtitles. Blu-ray. 105 min.View more
