The threshold of the 1700s. Justice doesn’t wait for an explicit accusation of witchcraft by fellow villagers, all it takes is “rumors” and the prosecution is set in motion. The screenplay is based on the transcript of the trial which was held in 1697 at Poschiavo-Brusio (Switzerland) involving Caterina Ross, a 32-year-old peasant, a Protestant, and the daughter and granddaughter of “strie." Dry and powerful, a movie which calls to mind Straub, Dreyer, and Bresson. Presented in 1982 at the first edition of the Festival Internazionale del Cinema Giovani and restored by the National Cinema museum and CSC with the contribution of Equilibra.
