Zambian-born Welsh director Rungano Nyoni is set to make her mark on British cinema with her groundbreaking first feature, 'I Am Not a Witch'. Sharply satirical and boldly provocative, the film garnered incredible praise from audiences and critics alike at the Cannes 2017 Directors’ Fortnight. 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. At times moving, often funny and occasionally surreal, 'I Am Not a Witch' offers spellbinding storytelling with flashes of anarchic humour. Audacious and unforgettable, it showcases Rungano Nyoni as a fresh and fearless new voice in British film. Shot by David Gallego ('Embrace of the Serpent'), it's extraordinarily beautiful cinema. ★★★★ "A striking fairytale satire" - Isabel Stephens, Sight & Sound ★★★★ "Boldly provocative parable" - David Parkinson, Empire ★★★★ "A startling movie" – Anna Smith, Time Out ★★★★ "Daringly satirical parable of magic and misogyny, superstition and social strictures" - Mark Kermode's Film of the Week, The Observer
