SAVAGE WITCHES

by Daniel Fawcett & Clara Pais(UK)
Genre: Experimental
Savage Witches is a playful, poetic and experimental film about two teenage girls who want nothing but to play games, dress up and have adventures, but when they find themselves in conflict with the world around them they set out to transform it and break free! The film attempts to satisfy all their wishes for freedom. They are aided by a magic key which unlocks the film allowing process to mix with its creation, artifice and reality to intermingle. But when Gretchen and Margarita are confronted with reality, it becomes clear that there is a vast gap between what they say they want and what they really want. However, once the game has been set in motion they are swept along in the film’s momentum and have to see it through to the end. savage witches2
Savage Witches is a colourful collage of sounds and images that has been created using all manner of processes and formats from VHS and Super 8 to drawn animation and hand-coloured frames, resulting in a bold and expressionistic exploration of the art of cinema.
