Sorcery15

Directed by Christopher Murray | Chile/Mexico | 2023 | 1h 41m | Spanish w/ English subtitles | Starring Valentina Véliz Caileo, Daniel Antivilo, Sebastian Hülk, Daniel Muñoz, José Aburto

In the late 19th century, on a remote Chilean island, an Indigenous girl named Rosa lives and works with her father on a farm. When the foreman viciously attacks her father, Rosa seeks justice by turning to the king of a powerful sorcerers’ organisation. This darkly atmospheric fable, inspired by real events, tells a tale of anti-colonial revenge and self-discovery, deeply rooted in ancient folklore.

Reviews

‘On the surface, “Sorcery” is a revenge film about a girl’s desire for vengeance, but below the surface is a gorgeous showcase of misunderstood Indigenous traditions and beliefs.’
★★★★
Charles Barfield, The Playlist

‘Christopher Murray’s film sees revenge as a small part of a far greater, more interesting story of an island girl’s self-discovery.’
Leila Latif, BFI Sight & Sound Magazine

We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
