Synopsis:
Since its premiere in 1922, Benjamin Christensen’s exploration of the role of superstition in medieval minds has caused an outrage and protest from both the general public and religious groups. Dramatizing satanic activates and rituals including the ways in which suspected witches were tortured and killed, Haxan is a deliriously imaginative masterpiece. Not until its re-release in 1941 did the director earn belated fame and respect – proof that this genre-defying ‘documentary’ was far ahead of its time. In 1968, the film won further praise and a whole new audience when it was re-released with a William Burroughs narration, under the title Witchcraft through the Ages.
