FILM I MALMÖ PRESENTS
Directed by Lukas Feigelfeld
SYNOPSIS: Paranoia & Superstition in 15th Century Europe.
DREADCENTRAL: “Beginning as a photographer before becoming a filmmaker, Feigelfeld takes visual and tonal cues from Tarkovsky, Murnau, and Lynch, crafting shots of lingering ominous beauty. Cinematographer Mariel Baqueiro brings the deep woods of the Austrian Alps to eerie life, adding the key atmospheric component that holds your gaze in what could have been a fairly inert debut feature otherwise. Feigelfeld is a passionate caretaker of the images he’s putting forth, but for some, certain sequences may feel they’ve outstayed their welcome.
The term Hagazussa resurfaced in the fifteenth century in connection with the witch hunts in Switzerland, stemming from the Old High German name for a female spirit in Nordic mythology who straddled the line between the world of the Gods and that of men. It may seem like a strange title but if you do a little digging, other definitions reveal the true nature of Albrun’s plight and her ultimate fate. Hagazussa, from its title to its execution, knows exactly what it wants to be and the feeling it wants to leave you with.
