Ballina Film Club: I Am Not a Witch  film

(Director: Rungano Nyoni, UK/France/Zambia, 2017, 93 minutes,)

After a minor incident in her village, 9-year-old orphan Shula is exiled to a witch camp where she is told that if she tries to escape she will be transformed into a white goat.

This impressive debut from Zambian-born female writer-director Rungano Nyoni satirises the clash between modernity and superstition in a small African community.
