    The Witches (Häxan), directed by Benjamin Christensen

MinoTAur Cinema is a unique place created especially for the duration of the Warsaw Under Construction festival.

One of the ateliers at Inżynierska 3 in Praga district has been transformed into an intimate cinema. The labyrinth of backstreets will transfer ardent seekers to the magical world of Bergman's masters, witches and French Surrealism.

A quasi-documentary movie in which Benjamin Christensen confronts witchcraft with female hysteria. The reception and context of this movie has changed over the years; it may have lost its initially shocking character, however, the director’s boldness and uncompromising stance continue to astonish viewers.
