SWIFF ENCORE SCREENING

The dazzling and original debut feature from Welsh-Zambian director Rungano Nyoni’s is a highly unique mix of magical realist drama, deadpan satire and feminist allegory.

The film follows the tragicomic fate of Shula, a nine-year-old misfit exiled to a ‘witch camp’ by superstitious neighbours and crooked bureaucrats. Amazingly, many such camps really exist in parts of Africa, although Nyoni’s fictionalised version is less interested in exploring the questionable veracity of witchcraft than in exposing the very real black magic of misogyny.With its narrative ellipses and achingly beautiful cinematography (shot by Embrace of the Serpent’s David Gallego), I Am Not A Witch blurs the lines between reality and surrealism, fable and fact. It also marks the emergence of an unmissable new talent.

“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.” – Variety
