I Am Not A Witch (2017)

89 minutes with subtitles

Director: Rungano Nyoni, UK/France/Germany/Zambia, subtitles
Shula is eight and, after an incident in her Zambian village, she is accused of witchcraft. She is exiled to a witches’ camp and faces exploitation. This is a sad story with shades of Miller’s ‘The Crucible’, yet Shula’s fortitude, laced with an irreverent humour, makes it an ultimately uplifting film.
