A modern classic, a dive into troubled areas of mankind: when the moral consensus turns into devastating hysteria.

1692, Salem, New England. A group of young girls is said to meet at night and surrender to the devil! The town, extremely puritan, immediately believes in a witchcraft epidemics. A trial is held, bringing together all sorts of fanaticisms. Female hysteria? Supernatural interferences? Simulations due to a desire of revenge? A couple seems to resist the systemic poisoning. Arthur Miller describes in a complex manner all sorts of reactions to the crisis, from that of moderated sceptics to fanatics. Mendacious allegations, denunciations, false confessions… conviction and repression. Some “witches” are publicly hanged. A great opportunity to evoke what nowadays may fall within the field of a “witch-hunt” in France, Europe or anywhere else (religious fanaticism, persecutions, racism, anti-Semitism, xenophobia, misogyny, moral order).
