I Am Not a Witch (2017)

In Zambian director Rungano Nyoni’s debut film, an eight-year-old girl is denounced as a witch and sent to a witches’ camp. Like the other residents, she’s tied with a ribbon to a large truck and told that should she ever cut the ribbon, she’ll be cursed and transformed into a goat… 

Winner of 15 international awards, including the BAFTA for Best Debut, I Am Not A Witch has a 96% critics’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes. 

As Variety put it, “It’s rare and exhilarating that a new filmmaker arrives on the scene so sure of herself and so willing to take bold, counter-intuitive chances… Invigorating, intriguing and provocative.”
