This is the first feature by British documentarist James Marsh from Micheal Lesy's 1973 book about the strange, even sinister series of events that befell the township of Black River Falls in the late nineteenth century. An idyllic haven populated largely by German and Scandinavian immigrants, the region suddenly succumbed to numerous cases of disease, insanity, possession, suicide, violence and death. Narrated by Ian Holm.
