official part with speeches and performance
Followed by the screening Häxan
BUT Film Festival is proud to host this remarkable one-of-a-kind 1922 classic and fully digitally restored film by the Danish director with the pious name Christensen. Probably meant as a warning it passionately elaborates on paganism and witchcraft rituals that it can be seen as an avantgarde manual for those trying to comfort our Dear Dark Lord.
The screening is part of our HOLY SHIT! program and is made possible bij Chassé Theater and the Swedish Film Institute. Pianist KEVIN TOMA will accompany this special screening with live piano music.
