Häxan + 'Realizing the Witch' book launch
Realizing the Witch: Science, Cinema, and the Mastery of the Invisible with a screening of Häxan
Wednesday, October 28, 7pm
Admission: $5 (free for members)

Benjamin Christensen's Häxan stands as a singular film within the history of cinema, with its powerfully staged historical scenes of satanic initiation, possession, and persecution. Häxan blends spectacle and argument to provoke a humanist re-evaluation of witchcraft in European history, as well as the contemporary treatment of female "hysterics" and the mentally ill. In Realizing the Witch, scholars Richard Baxstrom and Todd Meyers show how Häxan opens a window onto wider debates regarding the relationship of film to scientific evidence, and the complex relations between popular culture, artistic expression, and concepts in medicine and psychology. Meyers, an associate professor of medical anthropology at Wayne State, will be present to introduce the film, and lead a discussion following the screening.
