I Am Not a Witch

Buy Tickets


2017 • dir Rungano Nyoni w/Maggie Mulubwa • 93 min • DCP

Inspired by real events and guided by an equal love for Michael Hanake and The Craft, Rungano Nyoni’s remarkable film casts newcomer Maggie Mulubwa as a young Zambian girl accused of witchcraft and sent to a “witch camp” to be isolated and exploited along with others of her kind. Absurdist, magical, and heart wrenching in equal measure, I AM NOT A WITCH is a brilliant and utterly unique debut feature from a promising new director.

Staff Pick: Jessie, Cardinal, Casey

“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.” – Jessica Kiang, Variety

“Nyoni is clearly confident in her vision and the story she wants to tell, and in her capable hands, the result is spellbinding.” – Katie Rife, AV Club
