An Oscar nominee for Best Foreign Language Film, WAR WITCH tells the story of Komona, a young girl kidnapped by African rebels at the age of 12 and forced to fight against the government. When her ability to see ghosts in the trees makes her a favorite of the supreme leader of the rebels, Komona decides to escape the violent rebels. Working over a 10 year period using nonprofessional actors, director Kim Nguyen weaves true stories of child soldiers with footage from the Democratic Republic of Congo to create a poignant film which exudes visceral energy and emotional power.
