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

Dear Brattle Friends,

You guys continue to humble and amaze us with your outpouring of support!

Thanks to you, we have now raised more than $35,000 from over 400 individual donors!

Thank you for helping to keep our staff paid and The Brattle alive during this scary time.

I hope that you are all feeling healthy.

As we remain closed, our preliminary goal is to raise four weeks of operating support, or $65,000, to ensure we can continue to pay all of our staff, and other overhead through April 7. As things develop, our timeline for being closed and fundraising goal may change, but our ultimate goal of re-opening The Brattle stays firm.

With your help, this goal will become a reality.

Stay healthy,

Ivy, Ned & The Brattle Theatre Team
