Rebelle

Kim Nguyen Canada, 2012

mpho3's rating of the film War Witch

Move over white rabbit, the white rooster's in town. LATimes notes that Nguyen's film is "less about war and child soldiers than it is about an ordinary girl in extraordinary circumstances. His inspiration came a Burmese guerrilla group known as God's Army in the '90s who were believed by their followers to have magic powers." This deeply affecting work is brilliantly conceived and realized.
