A Curse In The Family: a Documentary on SRAI, Against Witchcraft Activity

Can survivors of witch hunts in India change traditional beliefs to stop the brutal practice?

In remote parts of India, illness, poor harvest and bad luck can sometimes mean only one thing: a curse in the family. Villagers will often consult an ohja, or witch doctor, who has the power to undo evil spells and identify people who placed the curse.

This film unveils a volatile world of land conflicts and abuse of power where women and their families fall prey to false accusations and are driven off their land.
