We’ve been following this powerful, harrowing film, titled War Witch, regularly on S & A, and it’s one that I’ve been especially dying to see after Tambay’s rave review last spring (HERE).
Kim Nguyen’s film is about a young Congolese girl and child soldier named Komona (played by Rachel Mwanza who won a Best Actress Award at Berlin for her performance), her fight for survival. and struggle to find some normalcy and peace in her life.
The film has already won some film awards this year, and will now finally get a theatrical release through Tribeca Film, starting in New York on March 1 2013, and then a week later in Los Angeles on March 8th.
However, if you can’t wait until then, the film will be available on demand starting on February 26th.
Here’s the trailer:
