Sunday Movies @ Main - I Am Not a Witch (2017)

1:30 PM - 4:30 PM
Main Library
The Eichelberger Forum, 1st Floor

In her BAFTA award-winning debut feature, Rungano Nyoni crafts a satiric feminist fairy-tale set in present-day Zambia. When 9-year old orphan Shula is accused of witchcraft, she is exiled to a witch camp run by Mr. Banda, a corrupt and inept government official. As the only child witch, Shula quickly becomes a local star and the adults around her exploit her supposed powers for financial gain. Soon she is forced to make a difficult decision - whether to resign herself to life on the camp, or take a risk for freedom.

Winner, Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer, BAFTA Awards. Nominated for a Golden Camera at the Cannes Film Festival. Nominated for Best International Film at the Film Independent Spirit Awards.

"Nyoni is clearly confident in her vision and the story she wants to tell, and in her capable hands, the result is spellbinding." - Katie Rife, AV Club
