Festival Details - "One-Handed Witch"...

Start: Saturday, August 17, 2024 8:00PM
End: Saturday, August 17, 2024 9:00PM

A fiery witch loses her hand to an angry mob, tames wild beasts in the forest, and starts hustling small town folk and casinos out of all their money, with just one hand. One-Handed Witch is a silent film of savagery and survival.

One-Handed Witch will be screened with a live musical score performed by a band of witches. She sold out shows across the country and shook the New Orleans Giant Puppet Festival like thunder. Salem, she's coming for you!

STORY
Two years ago, Samson Y Hiss fell off his bike in the rain on the Lefty O'Doul Bridge in San Francisco and broke his wrist. After an x-ray confirmed his swollen suspicions he started to compose organ music for one hand. One day while playing a Wizard Of Oz slot machine inspiration struck and he wrote the script for One-Handed Witch.

MUSIC
Samson Y Hiss is a circus composer and one-man band from Oakland. His credits include: Poison Circus and Circus Screams, theatre works about mental illness. His unorthodox score is striking from beginning to end. There are no repeated melodies or motives for characters. Each vignette is a new piece of discordant music.

SHADOW PUPPETS
Rita Deiola and Sara Draghi hail from Italy. Their most recent credit includes: Svegliati Europa, a film about the drama of immigration. With storyboards, sketches, and musical cues, they created the One-Handed Witch world with light and shadow.

One-Handed Witch was written and scored by Samson Y Hiss (US)
