he Deliverance of Comfort, Zina Saro Wiwa, Nigeria, 2010, 8 min

A short satirical fable about a child witch called Comfort. The film is a critical and densely-layered response to the belief in child witches in some parts of rural Nigeria and Africa and it questions the complex relationship between pre-Christian pagan belief and modern day Nigerian Christianity.
