News & Interviews for I Am Not a Witch
Critic Reviews for I Am Not a Witch
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.
Writer-director Rungano Nyoni has created a marvellous movie that might not always be easy to watch, but it sparks with artistry and originality.
Nyoni not only captures the absurdist processes of this world, with men delivering verdicts on the women, she frames it with compositions that capture both the fierce spirit of her protagonist and the ludicrous situation she must make the best of.
