Dark Middle Ages, the dead of winter. Young Albrun lives with her mother in a village in the Austrian Alps in a remote cabin. The years pass and Albrun has her own baby. She remains ostracized from the village society. Is she really a witch like everyone says? With Hagazussa, Lukas Feigelfeld stages a pulsating flow of senses. Magical, stoic, poetic. “A genuine piece of German gothic” (Fantastic Fest).
