Anaben Pawar is an elderly tribal woman accused of witchcraft in rural India. Through Ana’s story, we delve into a deep-rooted culture of patriarchy and examine one of the most monstrous attacks on women’s bodies in modern India: the witch-hunt.

MUBI's take

In remote corners of contemporary India, superstitious beliefs continue to be an instrumental tool for socio-economic exploitation. Through a first-person account of Anaben Pawar’s appalling ordeals, Testimony of Ana paints a poignant portrait of tribal rights and a woman’s fight to survive.
