The Juniper Tree

Australian Premiere

Official Selection: Rotterdam film Festival

We're over the moon to present this very special screening of Nietzchka Keene’s newly restored The Juniper Tree

Ideally cast in the famously dark Brothers Grimm fairy tale, legendary singer, performer and actress Bjork delivers a pitch perfect performance as Margit. 

Following their mother’s death Margit and her sister Katla (Bryndis Petra Bragadottir), find themselves living with bewitched farmer Johann (Valdimar Örn Flygenring). The ensuing story, told with a beautifully dreamlike aesthetic, combines spells, witchcraft, and family. Iceland is stunningly depicted, and the film is imbued with the raw power of the landscape. 

Rarely seen and now restored, The Juniper Treeis essential viewing.
