You Won’t Be Alone

You Won't Be Alone | Goran Stolevski | AU/UK/SR 2022 | 109 Min | DCP

A remote mountain village in nineteenth-century Macedonia. When a young woman is turned into a witch by the so-called Wolf-Eatress, she gains the ability to shift into the shape of her victims and see the world through their eyes. Goran Stolevski’s folk-horror fairy-tale, full of natural mysticism and sensory stimuli, is shot in the unconventional 1.44:1 format and presents one of the year’s most daring and best feature debuts. A narrative torch relay, carried by lyrical inserts and moments of raw violence, the unique You Won’t Be Alone feels as if Robert Eggers and Terrence Malick were dancing the Walpurgis Night away. Wow!
