The Love Witch and feminism: Q&A with director Anna Biller

'When I was growing up, I didn't see contemporary movies that were about the female figures I emulated.' Enter The Love Witch.

This week, Cinema Nova hosted a retrospective screening of the criminally underseen 2016 flick The Love Witch.

The event came with a best-dressed competition, a ‘love potion’ cocktail for each patron, and a Q&A with director, producer, editor, costumer designer etc etc., Anna Biller.

The Love Witch is a campy comedy-horror, starring the dazzling Samantha Robinson as Elaine the witch: a femme fatale, or perhaps antiheroine, who will stop at nothing to get the man of her dreams.
