Artists' Television Access

HÄXAN Accompanied with live new score by DR. PRISONER: THE BRAIN!

Friday, March 26, 2010, 8:00 pm, $6-$10


Our January screening (with live music) of Benjamin Christensen’s silent masterpiece HÄXAN was such a success that we’re bringing it back — so that all those folks who were turned away at the door can see it in all its magnificent, loony glory!  Featuring crazed nuns, flaming witches, and a spectacularly obscene performance by the director himself as Satan, HÄXAN is like no other film ever made: an uncontrolled rampage of feverish, violent images, part historical  recreation, part religious satire, all hallucination.

Once again, Artists Television Access is proud to present HÄXAN in a newly butchered version, prepared especially for these screenings by conceptual artist Dr. Astronaut Body.  Now missing over half an hour of crucial footage and structurally reorganized for maximum impact, HÄXAN will be accompanied by a new score performed live by the San Francisco electronica band
DR. PRISONER: THE BRAIN!   Including members of The Pine Box Boys and Reagan’s Polyp, DR. PRISONER: THE BRAIN! is part of the same creative team that has premiered new scores for THE MAN WITH THE MOVIE CAMERA, NOSFERATU, THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI, THE PASSION OF JOAN OF ARC, THE MAN WHO LAUGHS, KOYAANISQATSI, and the Led Zeppelin film THE SONG REMAINS THE SAME, all at Artists Television Access.
