"War Witch"

Kim Nguyen's Oscar-nominated (Best Foreign Language Film) Congo-set drama War Witch or Rebelle, an S&A 2012 Highlight selection, which stars Rachel Mwanza, will see a theatrical release through Tribeca Film, starting in New York this Friday, March 1 2013, and expanding to other markets through June.

The film is about a young Congolese girl and child soldier named Komona (played by Mwanza, who won a Best Actress Award at Berlin for her performance), her fight for survival and struggle to find some normalcy and peace in her life.

As director Nguyen describes it, the film is essentially a love story set in a time of war.

The multi-award-winning film has racked up a few film awards in the last 12 months, since its debut, and was nominated for an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film this year.

It's a film that we encourage you to see in the theater, but if you can't wait until it comes to your city, or if it's not coming to your city at all, the film also became available on demand starting on February 26th.

A brand new clip has been released and is embedded below:
