Saving Africa’s Witch Children (2008)

Channel 4/HBO (60’)

An investigative documentary about the witch children of Nigeria. Thousands of children get accused of witchcraft every year by pastors and local church people. Stigmatised as such they are beaten up, tortured and sometimes even killed. The film, which exposed false preachers conducting often-brutal exorcisms on children in order to make money, has moved the government in Nigeria to implement the Childs right act. The impact of this film has also forced the Nigerian Government to make it illegal to call children witches and wizards.
