Thrilled to see that BAMcinématek will be hosting "Witches' Brew," a witch-themed film series next month in honor of the premiere of Robert Eggers' "The Witch." Films include such occultic classics as "Black Sunday," "Suspiria," "Bell, Book, and Candle," and "Häxan." The series runs from Feb 16th through Feb 29th. More info:
"Witches have long fueled the imaginations of filmmakers, elevating them from pagan pariah status and portraying them as broomstick-wielding sorceress and supernatural teen queen. But it may be their status as symbols of empowered, unconstrained womanhood that is the most enduring source of witches’ powerful allure as a proto-feminist icon.
To mark the release of Robert Eggers’ potent new entry in the canon, The Witch, BAMcinématek conjures a series of spellbinding films that delve into dark arts and occult dealings."
I know how I'll be celebrating my birth month now.
(Thank you, Tasha, for the pointy-hatted heads up!)
