Repertory Series: (Some of) The Best of 2016 • January 11–19

Dead of Winter: Cinema of the Occult

Friday, January 27 – Thursday, February 2, 2017

The Brattle is excited to team-up with three noted authors to co-curate this series of magical movies: Peter Bebergal, Pam Grossman, and Janaka Stucky. Each will contribute their own introductions and illuminations for films during the series and we kick off the program with a panel featuring a conversation between the three on Friday, Jan 27. This series explores images of the occult in cinema – mostly dealing with the Western traditions of witchcraft and ritual magic – from 1950s (NIGHT OF THE DEMON, BELL BOOK & CANDLE) to today (THE WITCH, THE LOVE WITCH).

Peter Bebergal is the author of Season of the Witch: How the Occult Saved Rock and Roll and the forthcoming Strange Frequencies.

Pam Grossman is an independent curator, writer, and teacher of magical practice and history. She is the creator of Phantasmaphile.com and the author of the illuminated manifesto, What Is A Witch.

Janaka Stucky is an American poet, performer, and publisher. He is the founding editor of the independent publisher Black Ocean and the author of the full-length poetry collection, The Truth Is We Are Perfect.
