A private screening of the film "I Am Not A Witch" written and directed by Zambia born Welsh director Rungano Nyoni. This event is FREE, with food and wine provided. Synopsis 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. At times moving, often funny and occasionally surreal, I Am Not a Witch offers spellbinding storytelling with flashes of anarchic humor. Audacious and unforgettable, it showcases Rungano Nyoni as a fresh and fearless new voice in British film.

Agenda: The venue will open at 6:30pm for Food, Drinks and Conversation The film will begin at 7pm sharp and run for 93 Minutes Moderated discussion will begin after the film and run until 9pm.
