I am Not a Witch
‘A magic realist fable set in present-day Zambia that has plenty to say about gender and superstition.’- The Times
A unique and unforgettable brew concocted in the real-life witch camps of Zambia.
After a minor incident in her superstitious village, nine-year-old Shula is exiled to a camp to live with fellow ‘witches’. While adjusting to her new life, she must also deal with a government official keen to exploit her situation for political gain. Full of satirical humour and strange beauty, I am Not a Witch combines the qualities of strange fairytale and real-world exploration for one of the most striking debut films of recent years.
