A strong-willed, feminist witch (Han Hye-lin) does a television interview to defend her career choice, dispel a few stereotypes... and put predatory males on notice. Drawn from the South Korean short-film omnibus WEIRD BUSINESS, THE WITCH is a witty riff on women’s emancipation that updates the sisterhood of the broomstick for our times while keeping some classic lore intact. Praised for its 3D technique, this effort from Writer/Director Cho Young-joon will be screened in 2D.
