The Cursed Ones
Uploaded by Dizzle on FreshNewCut
Godwin, a disillusioned reporter, arrives in a West African community to cover a local event, but quickly becomes embroiled in a witch hunt. A town accuses a young, silent girl of being a witch after a sequence of catastrophes. Their pastor maintains that her exorcism and death are the only means of redemption. His enticing rhetoric and capacity to instill fear in the public sphere threatens to shatter their delicate environment. Godwin tries to rescue the girl’s life with the assistance of a young school teacher, valiantly resisting corruption and false prophets. The Cursed Ones is a narrative of morality, religion, corruption, and community in the heart of Africa, based on a true story.
