I am Not a witch (courtesy of Canes Film Festival)

An award-winning movie set in Zambia is among the films chosen by Emirates to showcase its innovative new inflight entertainment syncing system introduced this month.
Emirates, which flies daily direct from Lusaka to Dubai and Harare, has introduced an innovative new function on its app to allow customers to create bespoke playlists ahead of their flight and sync it to their seats once on board. Customers can plan their trip more effectively and maximise their onboard experience by using the Emirates app to browse the expansive entertainment catalogue at any time.
And among the exciting new movies featured is I am Not a Witch, which is set in Zambia and tells the story of an orphan who is declared a witch and banished to a commune of elderly “witches”. The film was nominated for and won a BAFTA in 2018.
The film is on the playlist for ice, Emirates’ award-winning inflight entertainment, which has reached a new milestone of over 4,000 channels of on-demand entertainment.

  2. Good to select a Zambian movie but stay away from dark theme like withcraft. It reinforces outdated/ignorant beliefs which Zambians should not entertain in this age.

    • There’s this channel on DSTv called ‘Investigation Discovery’ on 171 where sad but true-life stories are aired. There’s a lot to learn from those stories in as much as they are horrible in nature

  5. Just did an essay on in-flight entertainment in tourism. It’s good to see Zambian travellers catered for.
