Synopsis

"Alias is a young albino boy growing up in the central African bush. He is the subject of taunting and also vulnerable to a terrible danger: the belief among witch doctors that the bodies of albinos offer magical powers. As a result ,many albinos are murdered or mutilated for the prize of a charmed body part. Bent on saving Alias from this ghastly fate, his mother entrusts him to her brother who runs a number of small businesses in the city. The waking nightmare of the African albino muti trade — whereby albinos are hunted for their supposedly restorative body parts — is a tricky subject to film without leaning too far in the directions of exploitation or exoticism, but artist-turned-filmmaker Noaz Desch’s staggering debut feature, 'White Shadow,' strikes the necessary balance with vision to burn." - Variety

The film will be followed by a discussion with Justine Atkinson of the Africa in Motion Festival
