Sounds About, Berlin – November 2020
“Belladona Voluxa” is an experimental short film directed by Las Maleantes, an artistic collective founded by Adriana de Montserrat and Arnau Montserrat. The film is inspired by the Akelarres, pagan witch rites that were celebrated clandestinely due to its banning by religious authorities at that time, usually conducted by women and mystics with knowledge of medicinal herbs. These ceremonies were conducted in the caves of the forests of northern Spain, where they could hide and celebrate without being seen by the other villagers.
