About the film: One of the most fascinating works in the history of cinema is Christensen's visually stunning study of witchcraft, a blend of fictionalized vignettes and nonfiction texts exploring medieval sorcery practice. Frequently evoking paintings by Bosch, Häxan conveys a sense of dark emotion let loose on a naive world. (Benjamin Christensen, 1922, 35 mm, Danish and Swedish with soft-titles, 110 minutes)
