I Am Not A Witch (12A)

Rungano Nyoni | 2017 | UK | France | 93’

The people of nine-year-old Shula’s village don’t waste time crying over spilt well-water – they look for someone to blame, and Shula, new to town, with no family, is the obvious choice. Denounced as a witch, she is taken to a government-run travelling witch camp. This arresting first feature from Zambia-born, Wales-raised Rungano Nyoni crafts a framework of superstition and ritual onto which is hung a vividly realised, enigmatic portrait of a child’s life.
