MARGARET MULUBWA IN I AM NOT A WITCH ]

Captive child

[CAPSULE REVIEW]

Witches attached to long white ribbons, and a girl who wishes she had chosen to be a goat. It was shot in Ghana and concerns Zambian stories of witches confined to limited spaces, centered upon a nine-year-old.. The director, a woman, was born in Zambia and raised partly in Wales. The film combines satire and surrealism and has a mercurially expressive young star, Margaret Mulubwa. It was shot by David Gallego, dp of Embrace of the Serpent. This feature film debut introduces a vibrant new talent with a distinctive vision.

I Am Not a Witch, 92 mins., debuted at Directors Fortnight at Cannes 2917, and has been shown in nearly 40 international film festivals. Screened for this review as part of the San Francisco International Film Festival, Apr. 2018. Film Movement will release it.
