Here at KYD we love our wonderful members – you are the reason we can continue to publish great Australian writing. That’s why, to say thanks for your support, we’re giving all new and current KYD Members the chance to win one of 5 double passes to see I Am Not A Witch, opening at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) on 19 April.
If you’re female in Zambia, even witnessing another’s bad luck can be cause for condemnation. For nine-year-old Shula, it means being branded a witch, sent to a camp and given two options: she can accept her new label and live the rest of her life tethered to a white ribbon, or get turned into a goat if she seeks justice and freedom.
Inspired by real-life rural witch camps in Africa, Rungano Nyoni makes the leap from BAFTA-nominated short filmmaker to assured feature writer/director with a funny, eye-opening effort. Never following the expected path, her full-length debut both exposes and finds the utter absurdity in an archaic practice that continues to subjugate women, as captured in lyrical detail by cinematographer David Gallego (Embrace of the Serpent).
To be entered into the draw automatically, simply purchase a new KYD Membership from just $14.95. Current members, simply email your name and postal address to [email protected] with the subject line ‘I Am Not A Witch’ to enter.
Entries close midnight AEDT Sunday 22 April.
