This "fable-like story about a young African girl banished from her village for alleged witchcraft, ... blends deadpan humor with light surrealism, vivid visuals and left-field musical choices." Young Shula finds herself interned in a 'witch camp' full of elderly women who take her under their wings, while the camp's owner, Mr. Bandi exploits the women's labor as well as their exotic appeal to European tourists. The UK's submission for Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. Subtitled. More at iamnotawitch.com
