Häxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages with live score by Josephine Oniyama

This special event features a screening of Häxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages, a 1922 Swedish-Danish silent film written and directed by Benjamin Christensen, with a brand new live electronic/acoustic score from singer-songwriter Josephine Oniyama and musicians from the University of Salford.

An ensemble comprising synthesisers, drum machines and samplers will accompany Josephine’s soulful voice and skilful guitar playing. This live experience promises to bring to life a cult classic of silent cinema in a completely new way.

Music & Film is produced by HOME in collaboration with the University of Salford and is supported by Film Hub North West Central, a partner in the BFI Film Audience Network, which aims to build audiences for film and present cinema in new and exciting ways.
