VARSITY WORLD FILM WEEK ONLY - (Nyanja with English subtitles). When eight-year-old Shula turns up alone in a rural Zambian village, the locals are suspicious. A minor incident escalates to a full-blown witch trial, where she is found guilty and sentenced to life on a state-run witch camp. There, she is tethered to a long white ribbon and told that if she tries to run away, she will be turned into a goat. Sharply satirical and boldly provocative, Rungano Nyoni's groundbreaking debut garnered praise from audiences and critics alike at the Cannes 2017 Directors' Fortnight.
Suggested Rating PG-13.
