The Witches of Gambaga

The Witches of Gambaga is the extraordinary story of a community of women condemned to live as witches in Northern Ghana. Made over the course of five years, this disturbing exposéis the product of a collaboration between members of the 100-strong community of ‘witches’ and activists determined to end abusive practices and improve female lives in Africa. Painful experience and insight come together to create an intimate portrait of women ostracised by their communities. Directed by Yaba Badoe, and co-produced by Yaba Badoe and Amina Mama.
