Crystlsd working with Curzon Artificial Eye

We are delighted to be working with Curzon Artificial Eye on the release of a brilliant new film I Am Not A Witch.

A fearless debut from Zambian-born Welsh director Rungano Nyoni, the film will be showing in cinemas across the UK including the Tyneside Cinema in Newcastle, and on demand from Friday 20 October.

When eight-year-old Shula turns up alone and unannounced 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 ever tries to run away, she will be transformed into a goat. As the days pass, Shula begins to settle into her new community, but a threat looms on the horizon. Soon she is forced to make a difficult decision – whether to resign herself to life on the camp or take a risk for freedom.
