Acclaimed debut feature by Rungano Nyoni, set in his birthplace of Zambia. After a banal accident in her village, 8 year old Shula is accused of witchcraft. After a quick trial, she is found guilty and locked up in a witches' camp.
A film that is equally parts comic, tragic and captivatingly beautiful.

Wind River
Director: Taylor Sheridan • USA
Neo-Western murder mystery set on an American Indian reservation in Wyoming.  Jeremy Renner stars as a veteran Wildlife Service tracker and Elizabeth Olsen stars as an FBI agent investigating the murder of a young Native American woman and uses the case to seek redemption for an earlier act of irresponsibility which ended in tragedy.

Vibrant character portrait of a hedonistic young woman on the edge.
