I Am Not a Witch

Available on iTunes, Prime Video, BritBox
Sharply satirical and boldly provocative, I Am Not a Witch is the first feature by Zambian-born Welsh director Rungano Nyoni. Garnering incredible praise from both audiences and critics at Cannes 2017, this moving, funny and surreal film is an astonishing debut from a fresh and fearless new voice in British cinema. Following a banal incident in her local village in Zambia, eight-year old Shula is accused of witchcraft. After a short trial she is found guilty, taken into state custody and exiled to a witch camp in the middle of the desert. Like the other residents, Shula is tied to a ribbon which is attached to a spool that sits in a large tree. She is told that should she ever cut the ribbon, she'll be cursed and transformed into a goat. But as Shula adjusts to her new way of life, she discovers freedoms she never had access to before.
