We’re ending our Berlin Feminist Film Week 2018 with a screening of the stunning I am a Not Witch by Rungano Nyoni. The film set in Zambia and is a fairytale with feminist undertones and a good portion of satire. The film premiered in Cannes last year and has been named an unmissable film by critics. Before the screening, the winner of our Audience Award for best short film will be announced and screened again!
I am Not a Witch / Zambia/UK/France / Rungano Nyoni / 95 min
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 goat. As she navigates through her new life with her fellow witches and a government official who espouses her, exploiting her innocence for his own gain, she must decide whether to accept her fate or risk the consequences of seeking freedom.
