About the film:
Official Selection, 2017 Fantastic Fest
In a remote Alpine village in the 15th century, the orphan Albrun grows up to become a marked woman. The scapegoat of ancient superstitions and monstrous misogyny, this self-styled witch begins to assert her otherworldly birthright. The plague she conjures makes human cruelty look pathetic and small by comparison.
This atmospheric debut feature from Lukas Feigelfeld is a haunting pagan death trip and a startling vision of psychedelic horror.
“A spooky, stylish, spellbinding debut.”
—Stephen Dalton for The Hollywood Reporter
