Witches have been featured in movies since the invention of the moving camera. But their appearance and roles have changed over time from clown-like comedians to horrific monsters; from wild women to counter-culture teens. In this talk, Heather Greene, managing editor of The Wild Hunt, will share an overview of witch representations from 1908 to modern day. Heather has a masters degree in film history and criticism with an emphasis on 20th Century Hollywood cinema. Her previous work includes, "Producing the Princess Collection: An historical look at the animation of a Disney heroine," "Politics of Race in Disney's Jungle Book and Dumbo," "Hollywood Adaptations of the French Film," "Hitchcock's Rebecca" and more.
