Dir. Sébastian Laudenbach, France, DCP, 80 mins. English

In hard times, a miller sells his daughter to the Devil. Protected by her purity, she escapes from the Devil who, in revenge, deprives her of her hands. So begins a long journey towards the light… The Girl Without Hands is the audacious feature debut from acclaimed short filmmaker Sébastien Laudenbach, whose beautiful and dreamlike take on the Brothers Grimm story has created an adult fairytale destined to become a classic.

Although the preview below is subtitled, our screening of the film will be in English.
