The Love Witch – Special Encore Screening

The Love Witch 
USA | 2016 | 120 minutes  |  Dir: Anna Biller  |  Unclassified,
no under 16s unless with an adult

Elaine (Sarah Robinson) enchants men
with her charms, consuming them by the net full.
Yet this narcissistic witch reverses the traditional
roles of the sexes. A feminist message
in a fantastic 1960s setting.

With impressive attention to detail in set, costumes and music (including pieces by Ennio Morricone), Biller creates a decadent retro aesthetic. The Love Witch was shot on 35mm, with saturated colour used in a way that recalls Technicolor.

The filmmaker’s love of genre cinema is evident in every frame of this exuberant and decadent experience.

Stranger With My Face presented the Australian premiere of this film in April 2016. Since that time it has enjoyed a stellar run on the festival circuit and has garnered much interest for its US cinema release. So we’ve decided to screen it for Hobart audiences one more time! Don’t miss this stunning and highly original film on the big screen.

“Shot and designed with admirably compulsive attention to tone and composition.. a hothouse filled with deadly and seductive blooms…..The fear of female sexuality has been a staple of horror movies forever, but The Love Witch does more than simply subvert or parody the erotic underpinnings of the genre.” — AO Scott, The New York Times

“Not just an impressive visual and technical achievement. It’s also a nuanced statement on gender relations whose morals are as flexible as its formal qualities are rigid.” — Katie Rife, The AV Club

“The results are wildly over-the-top, in a Beyond the Valley of the Dolls-meets-Dark Shadows kind of way, but Biller’s commitment to her vision is weirdly endearing.” — The Salt Lake Tribune
