Free The Town is Nikyatu Jusu’s feature film debut: three lives interweave in Freetown, Sierra Leone. Love and occultism unite these strangers, revealing lies and illuminating truth. As 17 year old Binta runs from a past riddled with witch accusations, she collides with two strangers: a Brooklyn teen reuniting with his estranged African father and a European filmmaker relentlessly pursuing a story of African witch exorcisms. In a country struggling to progress, we discover the past often has an unshakeable grasp on the future.
