Foreign Cinema Series: I Am Not A Witch


Wednesday February 13, 2019
7:00 PM
The library is pleased to announce the first movie in our 3rd Annual “Foreign Cinema Series,” featuring eight entertaining and thought-provoking foreign films from Europe, Latin America, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. Tonight's feature: I Am Not a Witch, a 2018 debut film Zambian-born, Welsh-raised director and writer Rungano Nyoni, who won a BAFTA award for Outstanding Debut, along with many other nominations and awards. In this fable-like story, 8-year old girl Shula is accused of witchcraft. After a short trial she is found guilty, taken into state custody and exiled to a witch camp. At the camp she takes part in an initiation ceremony where she is shown the rules surrounding her new life as a witch. Like the other residents, Shula is tied to a ribbon which is attached to a coil that perches on a large truck. She is told that should she ever cut the ribbon, she'll be cursed and transformed into a goat.

All movies are subtitled in English. Light refreshments will be served.

This program supported by the Friends of the Library.
