EU Film Festival Screening: I Am Not a Witch
Looking for a plan for 11 May?Get down to Louis Leakey Auditorium for the screening of the ground breaking feature film “I Am Not a Witch” by Zambian-born Welsh writer director Rungano Nyoni.
When eight-year-old Shula turns up alone and unannounced in a rural Zambian village, the locals are suspicious. A minor incident escalates to a full-blown witch trial, where she is found guilty and sentenced to life on a state-run witch camp. There, she is tethered to a long white ribbon and told that if she ever tries to run away, she will be transformed into a goat. As the days pass, Shula begins to settle into her new community, but a threat looms on the horizon. Soon she is forced to make a difficult decision – whether to resign herself to life on the camp, or take a risk for freedom.
