“Moon Child is the revelation of the Cannes Festival, a movie adventure, intimate and pernicious, mystical and sophisticated, where we feel the thrill of seeing the invisible with the magic of their images.” –Le Nouvel Observateur
Inspired by famed occultist Aleister Crowley’s 1923 novel of the same name, Agusti Villaronga’s film centers around the extraordinary 12-year-old David (Enrique Saldana), who has been adopted by a treacherous scientific cult where extraordinary mental powers are common. He begins an archetypal journey across two continents with Georgina (Lisa Gerrard) to find his destiny as Child of the Moon.
Coming on the heels of Villaronga’s unforgettable 1986 film, In a Glass Cage, Moon Child is a mystical fantasy film for adults, available for the first time in the United States on Blu-ray & DVD. Presented in a new High Definition transfer and boasting an unreleased soundtrack by the band Dead Can Dance, Moon Child is a thoroughly unique gift to cinema and music fans alike.

“Moon Child is a unique film which mixes ice and fire and in which the wind blows from the supernatural. A spectacular film that takes us where movies very rarely go today: to a dream, to the magic.“ –Le Monde
“Villaronga creates a suffocating, claustrophobic universe.” –Offscreen
