Häxan with Live Score by Nick Carlisle


Come along to a special Halloween screening of the 1922 silent film Häxan at Ulster Folk Museum, presented in partnership with QFT, featuring a live performance of the haunting new score, composed and performed by electronic musician Nick Carlisle.
This evening screening will take place in the Folk Museum's Picture House, an original building dating back to 1850, which was in operation at the time of the film's creation. Before the screening, take a wander around some of the exhibit buildings, including our licensed McCuskers pub for a pre-show drink!
What to know
• The Folk Museum will be open from 18:30, with the performance starting at 19:30.
• Please wrap up warm and feel free to bring your own cushion! This event is taking place in an original silent picture house which is fitted to be historically accurate - including bench seating and no heating.
• Food and drink is not permitted in the Picture House, but there'll be an interval during the performance.
Häxan (15)
Benjamin Christensen's disorienting doc/fiction hybrid charts the history of ancient sorcery and demonology, and suggests a link between those persecuted for witchcraft and people living with neurological conditions. Through a series of striking vignettes, this picture traverses various cinematic styles from documentary and essay film, to horror and avant-garde. Formally daring and wildly inventive, even by today's standards, a hundred and one years on and there is still nothing else quite like it.
