hysteria
Canada / 3:20 / 2006 / sound / b/w
An unstable community leads to accusations and panic. Re-considering the Salem witch trials of 1692. Then doesn't always seem so far off from now.

"In 'hysteria', Christina Battle refers obliquely to the contemporary political climate using schoolbook illustrations of the Salem witch trials. She works the surface of the film in distinctive ways, lifting the emulsion to add new wrinkles to the image one frame at a time." - Chris Gehman & Andréa Picard, Toronto International Film Festival

Made with the support of LIFT & the New Directions in Cinema Series, 2006.

Selected screenings: Toronto International Film Festival, 2006
