I Am Not a Witch

Shula (Maggie Mulubwa) is the first child to be taken to a traveling witch camp, where she is tethered to a spool with a ribbon. She is told that should she cut the ribbon and attempt to escape, she will be cursed and transformed into a goat. Over time Shula begins to long for freedom. Forced to decide whether to accept her fate as a witch, Shula ignites a rebellion within the camp. Winner, Best Debut Feature at 2018 BAFTA Awards
