A magic realist fable set in present-day Zambia that has plenty to say about gender and superstition.

It's rare and exhilarating that a new filmmaker arrives on the scene so sure of herself and so willing to take bold, counter-intuitive chances.

A fable-like story about a young African girl banished from her village for alleged witchcraft, it blends deadpan humor with light surrealism, vivid visuals and left-field musical choices.

Maggie Mulubwa is captivating as the girl, and the story is an intriguing mixture of satire and tragedy, but the film's carefully artistic style (though an achievement) is at times too distracting.

October 23, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

An extravagant flight of fancy that functions equally well as an anthropological curiosity, engrossing drama, feminist allegory, tart political satire and dire warning against xenophobia.

October 23, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Aesthetically brave, narratively chaotic, this casts a singular spell.
