Tagline: "A Heathen's Curse."

Hagazussa: A Heathen's Curse is a German and Austrian film, from director Lukas Feigelfeld. This is Feigelfeld's first feature film. And, Hagazussa: A Heathen's Curse takes place in the 15th Century, when Paganism still existed and Christianity was on the rise. In a remote part of the Austrian Alps, Albrun (Aleksandra Cwen) is condemned for being a witch and she must use her powers to fight the local townsfolk. This title has been on a film festival tour since late 2017. A winner of several awards (Best Costume Design, Best Make-up, Best Art Direction), Hagazussa: A Heathen's Curse now has an international trailer, found below.

The official trailer shows some of the film's remote shooting locations. Covered in snow and out in the wilderness, Albrun struggles to stay alive. Lacking dialogue, the clip shows lots of strange imagery. But, the central story remains somewhere in the mist.
