“I Am Not a Witch approaches real-life injustices with a beguiling blend of sorrow, anger, and humor, marking debuting writer-director Rungano Nyoni as an exciting new talent.” Rotten Tomatoes
Touching, funny and at times mystifying, I Am Not A Witch follows the story of eight year old Shula as she is tried, convicted and condemned to spend the rest of her life in a witches camp. Welsh Zambian Rungano Nyoni’s debut film will almost certainly be unlike any movie that you will have seen before.
“Strikingly original” Kevin Maher, The Times
