Dir. Benjamin Christensen (1922).
Also known as Witchcraft Through the Ages, Danish director Benjamin Christensen’s silent is part mockumentary, part docudrama, part shock doc—a lavish personal statement and barely remembered classic that left its mark on talents as disparate as Luis Buñuel and William Burroughs. Live musical accompaniment is provided by the Matti Bye ensemble.
