BJORK’S FILM DEBUT IN A STARTLING REWRITE OF A BROTHERS GRIMM TALE

This program will be introduced by Margot Nash

A hit on its premiere at Sundance, Nietzchka Keene’s debut feature is also the first film for Icelandic singer Björk (billed here by her full name, Björk Guðmundsdóttir). Adapted from a tale by the Brothers Grimm — one of the gnarly unexpurgated ones, it’s a feminist retelling of the story of two sisters, Katla (Bryndis Petra Bragadóttir) and the younger Margit (Björk), find themselves homeless after their mother is burned as a witch…

Preceded by Shadow Panic (1989), Margot Nash’s award-winning short experimental film about internal and external states of emergency, about personal and collective shadows, about resistance and spirit.
