Rungano Nyoni’s debut feature is a dazzling and winningly original fable-like story about a young African girl accused of witchcraft.

Shula, an 8-year-old Zambian girl, is banished from her village for alleged witchcraft. After a short trial she is found guilty and exiled to a witch camp. As she navigates her new surroundings, Shula must decide whether to accept her fate or risk the consequences of freedom: being cursed and transformed into a goat.

I am Not a Witch is a wildly audacious fairy tale that uses satire and deadpan humour to critique the specific tradition of witch camps and also the attitudes towards women.
