Long Beyond Sundown: HAXAN - Witchcraft Through The Ages
As part of the Long Beyond Sundown series of folk horror-themed screening at the Menagerie in October, Benjamin Christensen's Haxan is to be shown, with a soundtrack from The Dreads' Ben Harris, Ryan Fitzsimmons and Documenta's Stuart Watson.
A hybrid of documentary and fiction, this silent film explores the history of witchcraft, demonology and satanism. It shows representations of evil in a variety of ancient and medieval artworks, offers vignettes illustrating a number of superstitious practices and presents a narrative about the persecution of a woman accused of witchcraft.
Admission costs £3, doors open at 6pm and the screening begins at 8pm.
