As we feel the very first touch of autumn, we are reminded that the edge of winter’s darkness is moving towards us too – the spirits of Halloween are the greeters – as well as the fog, the rain, and the falling leaves…

 

Here is a beautifully made Icelandic art house film to set the mood – starring a young Bjork.

 

“The Juniper Tree tells the story of two sisters who have escaped after their mother has been stoned and burned as a witch. Baby-faced Bj√∂rk plays teenaged Margit, who comes along when her sister bewitches and marries a widower with a young son.” (Dangerous Minds)
