“Each day I pray to God to give me the strength to love you.” Fourteen-year old Komona (Rachel Mwanza, in one of the best performances of the year) tells her unborn son the story of her kidnapping and coercion into becoming a child soldier for the Great Tiger rebels. Set in nowhere Sub-Saharan Africa, WAR WITCH is filmed with the ultra realism of a documentary though its forests teem with ghosts, its villages with magic, its love story with unexpected reveries of laughter, and its child’s story with sudden tragedies that must be confronted in the search for peace.
Graphic content not suitable for children.
