There's a belief which exists in many Nordic countries that witches in remote villages steal cream from their neighbours with a Mjölkhare or Milkhare, a creature fashioned from the bodies of animals, heddles, bessoms and string - bought to life by the witch with her own blood.

MiLK HaRE is a unique stop-motion short that uses a number of techniques including pixilation and timelapse to tell its macabre tale. The film was completed in 2011 and premiered at the 17th Bristol Encounters International Film Festival in November. Please contact us for further information or to arrange a screening.
