I AM NOT A WITCH


Following a trivial incident in her village, 8 year old Shula is accused of witchcraft. After a short trial she is found guilty, taken into state custody and exiled to a witch camp in the middle of the desert. At the camp, she takes part in an initiation ceremony where she is shown the rules she must follow in her new life as a witch. Like the other residents, Shula is tied to a white ribbon which is attached to a coil placed on a branch of a large tree. She is told that should she ever cut the ribbon, she will be cursed and transformed into a goat.
