‘Hilarious yet extremely poignant’
Heinrich Kramer is the Jordan B Peterson of mediaeval Bavaria, the Andrew Tate of the Catholic Church.
Jacob Sprenger is a weird little guy with sweaty hands.
All Heinrich wants is an orderly cosmos, a sizeable following and a lucrative book deal.
Jacob just wants a friend.
Join them on their rabid quest to save the world, one witch trial at a time.
Incorporating text taken directly from Die Hexenhammer and verbatim text found on online incel forums, HEXENHAMMER explores how men end up killing women as a way to solve their own problems, and why that hasn’t changed in the past 500 years.
Directed by Complicité Associate Catherine Alexander. Shortlisted for Untapped Awards 2022.
