“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.”—Jessica Kiang, Variety

Don’t miss the debut feature from writer-director Rungano Nyoni—an often-humorous, slyly feminist social critique that tells the story of an eight-year-old Zambian girl accused of being a witch (after a minor accident occurs in her presence). Like all women accused of witchcraft in her region, the child is sent to a “witch camp” where the accused are held captive and forced to serve as manual labor, act as tourist attractions, and even use their “power” as needed. (98 mins., DCP)
