Directed by Maria Wilson
In this short thriller by first-time director Maria Wilson, a young modern-day witch anxiously prepares for the mystical rite of passage that determines whether her abilities will be used for good or for evil. Deep in the woods, at an isolated cabin, Penelope (played by Maria Wilson) looks out of place as she awkwardly chops firewood in preparation for that night’s ritual. Familial pressure and the uncertainty of her future weighs down on her as she comes to terms with the fact that it’s not just her life hanging in the balance.
A young modern-day witch endures the mystical rite of passage that determines whether her abilities will be used for good or for evil.
Cast: Maria Wilson, Will Harrison
Nicely done. Definitely left me wanting more and not mourning its demise.
Great actress, wonderfully shot, lovely locations...nice little short
Doesn't offer enough, but at least it stops before overexposing you to boring, wishy-washy witchcraft
I hate when I can't see the murder
An excellent short with a familiar yet original premise. Does a lot with its short run time, has an excellent lead performance and beautiful photography that provides a visual poetry echoing the script. Loved it.
