A 1922 silent film consisting partly of documentary-style storytelling as well as dramatized narrative sequences, Häxan charts the historical roots and superstitions surrounding witchcraft, beginning in the Middle Ages through the 20th century. In 1968, it was re-edited and re-released in the US under the title Witchcraft Through the Ages. This version includes an English-language narration by William S. Burroughs. It has been praised for its combination of documentary-style and narrative storytelling, as well as its visual imagery, and has been called Christensen’s masterpiece.
