Matchbox Cineclub
The Witch + Kate Dickie Q&A

Sun 28 October 2018

New England, 1630. Upon threat of banishment by the church, an English farmer leaves his colonial plantation, relocating his wife and five children to a remote plot of land on the edge of an ominous forest—within which lurks an unknown evil. Strange and unsettling things begin to happen almost immediately—animals turn malevolent, crops fail, and one child disappears as another becomes seemingly possessed by an evil spirit. With suspicion and paranoia mounting, family members accuse teenage daughter Thomasin of witchcraft, charges she adamantly denies. As circumstances grow more treacherous, each family member’s faith, loyalty and love become tested in shocking and unforgettable ways.

Actor Kate Dickie (Game of Thrones, The Last Jedi) joins for a post-screening Q&A.

To celebrate the reopening of CCA, Matchbox Cineclub are taking over CCA’s cinema for a four-night collaborative #WeirdHorror pop-up this Halloween. From Thursday 25 October to Sunday 28 October, we have snake women, Canadian vampires, retro-futuristic fever dreams and 17th century rural witchcraft, as well as director and star Q&As.
