Whitby Film Society presents “I Am Not A Witch”

Thursday 10/01/19

In this daringly satirical parable of magic and misogyny, superstition and social structures, a nine year old girl in a remote Zambian village is accused of being a witch and given a start choice: to accept her supernatural branding and live a tethered life as a sorceress or to cut her ties with local tradition and be transformed into a goat that may be killed and eaten for supper.
 
Although the story was apparently inspired by real-life reports of witchcraft accusations in Zambia, “I am not a witch” is also a work of fairytale invention.
 
Doors open 7.15pm for a 7.45pm start
Tickets : £6 on the door
Refreshments available
