Watch Trailer For ‘I Am Not A Witch’

Nominated for a 2018 Independent Spirit Award for Best International Film and a Golden Camera Award at Cannes, I AM NOT A WITCH, from the Zambian-born Welsh director Rungano Nyoni is a striking satire about witchcraft in contemporary Zambia. When eight-year-old Shula turns up alone and unannounced in a rural village, the locals are suspicious. A minor incident escalates to a full-blown witch trial, where she is found guilty and sentenced to life on a state-run witch camp. There, she is tethered to a long white ribbon and told that if she ever tries to run away, she will be transformed into a goat. As the days pass, Shula begins to settle into her new community, but a threat looms on the horizon. Soon she is forced to make a difficult decision – whether to resign herself to life on the camp, or take a risk for freedom.

Opening September 7th at Quad Cinema and BAMCinematek in New York City with Addt’l Markets to Follow.
