“Writer-director Rungano Nyoni has created a marvellous movie that might not always be easy to watch, but it sparks with artistry and originality.”~Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall

Aroview: Full of joy and tragedy in the equal measure, this assured debut from Zambian writer-director Rungano Nyoni follows the story of 9-year old girl who is accused of witchcraft after a banal incident in her Zambian village, and is sent to an absurd "witch camp" to be initiated into a life as a witch. The film bravely attacks a world of systemic misogyny and ignorance with comic satire and fierce spirit.
