Day of Wrath

Directed by Carl Theodor Dreyer

Shot during WWII, this stark drama of love and witchcraft is seen as an allegory of Nazi occupation. In 1623 a young wife wishes her elderly preacher husband dead. His acquiescence leads to a charge of witchcraft against her. “A film of unparalleled visual brilliance and profound emotion.” NFT brochure
