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

Set in Zambia, the birthplace of writer-director Rungano Nyoni, I AM NOT A WITCH revolves around a 9 year old girl, Shula, who is accused of witchcraft. Shula is the first child to be taken to a travelling witch camp, where she is tethered to a spool with a ribbon. She is told that should she cut the ribbon and attempt to escape, she will be cursed and transformed into a goat. Over time Shula begins to long for freedom. Forced to decide whether to accept her fate as a witch, Shula ignites a rebellion within the camp. I AM NOT A WITCH stars newcomer Maggie Mulubwa, and is the first feature film from Nyoni, whose short films have earned her multiple awards and a BAFTA nomination

“A fiercely original satire full of social comment, deadpan laughs and striking images.” – Total Film

“A winningly original and stylistically fresh debut feature…the birth of a significant new screen voice.” – The Hollywood Reporter
