Synopsis

While out for a walk in the countryside, Marina and Juvenal stop to take some pictures in front of an old woman's house. Annoyed, the old woman turns out to be a witch and casts a curse on the young couple. Sitges recovers an unreleased film by José Mojica Marins. The Curse was shot in 1980 and was considered lost, but it was recently restored and digitized in 4K by Heco Produções.

 

This screening will be preceded by a short film, A Última Praga de Mojica (2021), about the process of the film's completion and restoration.
