The Goat and her Three Kids
No upcoming showtimes scheduled.
Director: Victor Canache
2022 / 83min / DCP
Adapted from Ion Creangă’s story of the same name, one of the best known of Romanian fables, stuntman-turned-director Canache’s 19th-century set period piece draws out the tragic and terrible aspects of the popular bedtime story in telling the tale of a widowed mother of three, living in secluded isolation, and forced to defend her family from a former friend who has become a vindictive enemy. An atmospheric, absorbing, and elegantly shot addition to the canon of folk horror.
