Join us at Cinema Salem for a screening of Häxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages.
This film, originally released in 1922, stands as the first ever film to present an exploration of witchcraft. Created in a pseudo-documentary/horror style, the film was controversial for its time due both its subject matter, and the variety of both strikingly beautiful and artfully disturbing vignettes it presents to examine the role of the Witch and occultism throughout history.
Following the film we will have a brief intermission immediately followed with a panel discussion moderated by Matthew Venus of Spiritus Arcanum. Our panel will discuss the and dissect the factual folklore from the more fantastical fallacies presented in the film, and further, discuss the historical character of the Witch in film and media. Panelists will include Dr. Al Cumins and Jesse Hathaway of the Radio Free Golgotha Podcast and Jacqui Allouise-Roberge, owner of The Cauldron Black in Salem, MA.
$5 from every ticket sold will be donated to The Witchcraft & Human Rights Network Organization, an organization which works throughout the world to educate and combat against human rights violations occurring as a result of witchcraft accusations, and we will also be holding a raffle during the event to raise further funds for this most worthy cause.
