Not a witch

Tues 13th Mar/Weds 21st Mar 7.30pm

In a remote Zambian village, 9-year-old Shula is accused of being a witch and given the choice to accept her role, tethered to a tree, or be turned into a sacrificial goat.

Choosing to attend ‘witch camp’ she becomes a tourist attraction in the control of a corrupt local official, paraded on TV chat shows for his profit.

This acclaimed film is a satirical allegory for societies where women are powerless in the face of ignorance, corruption and misogyny.

Cert 12A. In English. 92 mins.
