THE WIDOWED WITCH

Directed by Cai Chengjie

Winner of the top prize at the Rotterdam Film Festival, director Cai Chengjie’s debut feature— which was shot in 11 days on borrowed equipment— is, like its titular protagonist, unexpectedly powerful and fiercely unpredictable. After losing her house and husband, a rural woman learns how to survive on her own, using shaman powers to influence people around her.

 

Co-presented by APIQWTC (Asian Pacific Islander Queer Women Trans Community)
