About Demon

Newly arrived from England to marry his fiancée Zaneta (Agnieszk Zulewska, Chemo), Peter (Israeli actor Itay Tiran, Lebanon) has been given a gift of her family’s ramshackle country house in rural Poland. It’s a total fixer-upper, and while inspecting the premises on the eve of the wedding, he falls into a pile of human remains. The ceremony proceeds, but strange things begin to happen…During the wild reception, Peter begins to come undone, and a dybbuk, the iconic ancient figure from Jewish folklore, takes a toehold in this present-day celebration-for a very particular reason, as it turns out.

Based on noted Polish writer Piotr Rowicki’s play Adherence, Demon is the final work by Marcin Wrona, who died just as Demon was set to premiere in Poland.

Provided courtesy of The Orchard. Not rated. Running time: 94 minutes. In English, Poish, and Yiddish, with English subtitles.
