Demdike Stare score Haxan plus special edition of The Wire Salon for BFI Gothic Season

The Wire is partnering a weekend of events under the banner of Hauntology as part of the BFI's Gothic season 13–14 December. A special edition of The Wire Salon will take place, discussing the use of Gothic imagery and ideas ripped from occult and transgressive cinema (panelists TBC).

Demdike Stare will also perform a live score to Haxan: Witchcraft Through The Ages, plus Scanner's version of John Dowland's Lachrimae performed by Robin Rimbaud, Carter Tutti and Gazelle Twin. The weekend will also include a screening of The Stone Tape followed by a Q&A with director Peter Sasdy, plus an evening of theremin, vocals and automata with Sarah Angliss's Spacedog, Time Attendant and The Advisory Circle.
