Dancinema 2022: Persecution (Vardø, Norway)

We are in the fishing village of Vardø in the 16th century. Two people are on trial for sorcery and witchcraft where they try to prove their innocence through physical language. It is useless, we see a desperation grow in these people and it develops into a desperate dance for survival as a circle of flame is lit around them which burns closer and closer with no escape.
This is a dance film based on real events.
