Eyes, endless tunnels, and plates  — dissolving under the radiance of the Moon —  from director Agustí Villaronga (IN A GLASS CAGE) comes a mystical tale of the paranormal . A cherubic, blonde 12-year old orphan boy has just been adopted by a mysterious cult. Members of the sect believe he has supernatural powers. When he discovers their plans for him, he escapes to fulfill his destiny under the omnipotent beams of the Moon, his journey accented by the ethereal wails and hypnotic pounding of the eerie Dead Can Dance score. Inspired by occultist Aleister Crowley’s unsettling 1923 novel of the same name, MOONCHILD is an illusory fairy tale turned night terror, awash in blue. (Jazmyne Moreno)
