The cold winter stretches over the Alps of the 15th century. A young goatherd and her mother are living in a remote hut, deep in the woods. As her mother mysteriously falls ill and dies, Albrun is left scarred and traumatized. 20 years later, herself a mother already, Albrun slowly begins to discover a dark presence lurking in the woods. In her psychotic delusion, the borders between reality and nightmare begin to melt into each other, as she is again confronted with the death of her mother and the wicked evil within herself. “Hagazussa: A Heathen’s Curse” is a dark tale of a woman’s struggle with her own sanity, in
a time when pagan beliefs of witches spread fear
into the minds of the rural folk. First feature film by
Austrian director Lukas Feigelfeld.
