SORCERESS (Le moine et la sorcière) Friday, May 16th, 8pm at SubRosa! 703 Pacific Avenue

Join us for the fourth film of the Pagan Film Series!

Santa Cruz Guerilla Drive-In and Community Seed presents:

(Le moine et la sorcière)

Friday, May 16th, 8pm
at SubRosa! 703 Pacific Avenue

A Dominican friar visits a 13th-century French village in search of heretics. Despite the opposition of the local priest and the indifference of the villagers, he finds a seemingly perfect suspect: a young woman who lives in a forest outside the village and cures people with herbs and folk remedies. French with English subtitles. Not Rated.

***The screenwriter, Pamela Berger, is a Professor of Medieval Art History at Boston College. She also wrote a ten-page behind-the-scenes explanation of the film titled Sorceress: The Story and Scripting of the Film. It's available as a .pdf here. You should check it out when you have the time!

This series is an opportunity to come together, to watch
engaging films, and also to engage each other, to share thoughts and experiences, and to create more of an overlap of the many social circles that exist in this town.
