Part of BAMcinématek

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.
