Häxan

Häxan

Details

Edla Hansen began working in the Danish film industry from its earliest days, starting out as a film cutter at Nordisk Film in 1915. Though she went on to have an editing career that spanned five decades, it is Häxan that is her best remembered work. Released in 1922, this legendary silent film, written and directed by Benjamin Christensen, mixes documentary with dramatic vignettes to explore the history of witchcraft and hysteria. Hansen’s editing skillfully brings together elements of Gothic horror, dark humour and essay-film to create a truly unique piece of cinema.

Screening with live organ accompaniment by Darius Battiwalla.

Part of Mother Cutter: Women Who Shaped Film, LIFF 2019's selection focused on women film editors.
