Adopted by a treacherous semi-scientific cult where extraordinary mental powers are common, extraordinary 12-year-old David begins an archetypal journey across two continents to find his destiny as Child of the Moon.
“A spectacular film which mixes ice and fire, and which takes us where movies rarely go today: to a dream, to magic.” — Le Monde
“The revelation of the ’89 Cannes Festival, intimate and pernicious” — Le Nouvel Observateur
MOON CHILD is a mystical fantasy film for adults, a unique gift to cinema and music fans alike boasting an unreleased soundtrack by Australian goth pioneers Dead Can Dance.
Inspired by famed occultist Aleister Crowley’s novel, and spun from the mind of Agusti Villagronga (director of the unforgettable, boundary-pushing IN A GLASS CAGE), MOON CHILD centers around extraordinary 12-year-old David (a haunting Enrique Saldana), who’s adopted by a treacherous scientific cult where extraordinary mental powers are common. He begins an archetypal journey across two continents with Georgina (Lisa Gerrard of Dead Can Dance) to find his destiny as Child of the Moon.
