I Am Not a Witch

Watch Now

After a minor incident in her village, nine-year-old Shula is exiled to a travelling witch camp where she is told that if she tries to escape she will be transformed into a white goat. As she navigates through her new life, she must decide whether to accept her fate or risk the consequences of seeking freedom.

Shades of early Werner Herzog in this tale of a young girl accused of witchcraft, demonized by society, exploited by government and gawked at by television audiences…a compelling and often funny film. 9 year old lead Margaret Mulubwa is a revelation.”
