The Widowed Witch (2018)

Writer-director Cai Chengjie’s picaresque first feature is a disenchanted, bitterly funny fairytale about a woman accused of witchcraft who decides to turn the curse to her advantage. Gorgeously filmed in the glassy winter light of China’s Hebei province, it begins when Erhao finds herself widowed for the third time. Branded a witch, she leaves town in a dilapidated camper van to manipulate the greed and superstition that infects everyone she meets.

DCP, color, in Mandarin with English subtitles, 120 min. Director/Screenwriter: Cai Chengjie. Cast: Tian Tian, Wen Xinyu, Wang Qilin.
