Inspired loosely by The Blood Countess (by the brilliant, Andrei Codrescu), Erzebet Bathory (Hungary, 17 August 1560 – 21 August 1614), who was accused and convicted for murdering hundreds of young girls, comes Ataraxia, a short neo-gothic film about a young nurse who yearns to impress her new wealthy employer, will soon discover that her boss has a special liking for her nurses and the occult. Bringing a Victorian stylistic edge to a modern story, Ataraxia is destined for future film festivals and for becoming a great piece in its creator’s portfolio.
Currently Ataraxia is being produced by New York Film Academy graduate students
George Sardis (writer/director) and Tatjana Bluchel (producer).
