War Witch Trailer

"We are rebels. Respect your guns." One of the Best Foreign Film nominees in this year's Oscars is War Witch, a film about Komona (played by Rachel Mwanza), an African taken and turned into a rebel soldier at age 12. I had seen this on the list of nominees, but wasn't really sure what it was about until watching this trailer, and now I understand why it's on there. This looks incredibly good. Such a great trailer as well, that sets up the tone while showing us just a bit of the story. I love the music and the brief amounts of dialogue, I'm more than intrigued to see this. The Academy Award nomination is just icing on the cake. Take a look!

Watch the official US trailer for Kim Nguyen's War Witch, in high defition from Apple:

Komona (Rachel Mwanza) is only 12 years old when she is kidnapped by rebel soldiers and enslaved to a life of guerrilla warfare in the African jungle. Forced to commit unspeakable acts of brutality, she finds hope for survival in protective, ghost-like visions (inspiring a rebel chief to anoint her "War Witch"), and in a tender relationship with a fellow soldier named Magician (Serge Kanyinda). War Witch is written and directed by filmmaker Kim Nguyen. This French-Canadian film premiered at Berlin and Tribeca last year. Tribeca Films is giving War Witch a release in theaters on March 1st plus VOD on February 26th. Curious?

I have this movie on dvd, it's a difficult watch for most, extremely raw and it paints a vivid picture of what child soldiers of africa go through on a regular basis...also check out Johnny MadDog too, another film like this one, but more intense.
