Her life revolves around cousins, friends, aunts and uncles, and the people she serves at church. Her most precious burden is her grown son, Brian (Jake Lacy), constantly in-and-out of rehab. Hovering over Diane’s duty-bound existence is the shadow of guilt for an old sin. Solitude opens to new levels of perception and being as Diane is confronted with the possibility of forgiveness.

Rating: NR] No Trailer Best Cinematography, Best Narrative Feature, Best Screenplay (Tribeca Film Festival) I AM NOT A WITCH A favorite of film critics and audiences alike, this film is beautifully shot in Zambia. Director Nyoni has been praised by critics for her use of humor, satire and surrealism to tell the story of a young girl accused of witchcraft and banished to a witch camp in the desert. Exploring prejudice, superstition, corruption, and the exploitation of children and women, the director employs uniquely original story-telling techniques to enchant audiences. [Dir. Rungano Nyoni, 2017, United Kingdom/France, 92 minutes. In English, Bemba, Nyanja with English subtitles.
