I Am Not a Witch is part of our In Translation series of recent foreign language films of note

After a banal accident in her village, Shula, an eight-year-old girl, is accused of witchcraft. After a quick trial, she is found guilty and locked up in a witches’ camp.

"A magic realist fable set in present-day Zambia that has plenty to say about gender and superstition."
- Anna Smith, Time Out
"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
"A fable-like story about a young African girl banished from her village for alleged witchcraft, it blends deadpan humor with light surrealism, vivid visuals and left-field musical choices."
- Stephen Dalton, Hollywood Reporter
