An evocative, esoteric exploration of witchcraft at the end of the 1960s – including night-time ritual, reflections on the history of Wicca and a black mass. This influential counter-cultural documentary of pagan belief is austere and striking in this brand-new, digitally remastered edition. It centres on the rituals of celebrated Notting Hill Witch King and Queen, Alex and Maxine Sanders. This screening marks the launch of its BFI Flipside dual-format release, alongside post-hippy occult piece, Secret Rites (Derek Ford, 1971). After the screening, Doug Weir, BFI Technical Manager, who oversaw digital remastering, and witchcraft scholar Christina Oakley Harrington, PhD FRSA, director of Treadwells Books, will discuss the film with programmers William Fowler and Vic Pratt.

Also available on BFI Player.
