The Withces of Gambaga is the extraordinary story of a community of women condemned to live as witches in Northern Ghana. Made over the course of 5 years, this disturbing expose is the product of a collaboration between members of he 100 strong community of 'witches' and women's movement activists determined to end abusive practises and improve women's lives in Africa. Painful experience and insight come together to create an intimate portrait of the lives of women ostracised by their communities.
