Life is far from easy for Nour, who is navigating the challenges of single parenthood while earning a risky living as a smuggler of exotic flora and fauna. In hopes of a better future for her son, she creates a mobile app that connects clients with mystical marabout healers. At first, it seems like they’re on the path to success, but after a patient’s consultation devolves into tragedy, Nour faces a backlash of extreme violence that threatens her son’s life and her own.

A riveting feature-length chase starring Golshifteh Farahani (Paterson) and Denis Lavant (Holy Motors, Beau Travail), Hood Witch’s thrills are packed with social commentary, offering a refreshing take on the ways in which social media can fuel the flames of outrage. It’s one woman against the world in this strong directorial debut from a promising talent.
