Visually stunning history of the occult, recreating actual incidents based on records of witch trials, demonic possessions, and torture by the Inquisition. Writer-director Christensen plays Satan himself in this genuinely scary, no-holds-barred silent film.
HÄXAN continues the BEAT THE SILENCE! section at Black Bear Filmfest.
The film will be accompanied by a custom made DJ set by DJ Shahaf Thaler from Berlin.
