In Zambia, 9-year old orphan Shula is accused of witchcraft and exiled to a witch camp run by a corrupt government official. As the only child witch, Shula is exploited by adults for financial gain and forced to decide whether to resign herself to life on the camp, or take a risk for freedom.

Our take

Exploring Zambia’s little-known culture of “witch camps,” this debut feature is a masterful combination of comedy, tragedy, magic, and dazzling visuals. A portrait of a defiant young girl and an acerbic criticism of women’s oppression and corruption through tourism, media, and societal superstition.
