GASLIGHTING AND TORMENTING: FROM HITCH TO THE LOVE WITCH
Double Feature! Director Anna Biller In Person!
THE LOVE WITCH / LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN

Etheria Film Night co-founder Heidi Honeycutt has more to say about our "Gaslighting and Tormenting" series here.

Discussion between films with THE LOVE WITCH director Anna Biller.
35 mm!

THE LOVE WITCH
2016, Oscilloscope Laboratories, 120 min, USA, Dir: Anna Biller

In this special presentation of director Anna Biller’s latest independent feature, beautiful young witch Elaine is determined to find a man to love her. In her gothic Victorian apartment she makes spells and potions to seduce men - but they work too well, and she ends up with a string of hapless victims. When she finally meets the man of her dreams, her desperation to be loved will drive her to the brink of insanity and murder. With a visual style that pays tribute to Technicolor thrillers of the 1960s, THE LOVE WITCH explores female fantasy and the repercussions of pathological narcissism.


LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN
1946, 20th Century Fox, 111 min, USA, Dir: John Stahl

Exhibit A in the argument that film noir isn't always black-and-white. Don't let the stunningly lush Technicolor fool you - this big-budget soap opera has the blackest of hearts and is as perverse and malignant as it got in the ’40s. Novelist Cornel Wilde falls for gorgeous Gene Tierney but has no idea of the darkness lurking behind those emerald eyes. A rare chance to see Leon Shamroy's Oscar-winning cinematography on the big screen.


Screening format: 35mm (THE LOVE WITCH), DCP (LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN)
