Synopsis

Doc'n Roll Film Festival


UK Premiere


The film follows the 21st Century formation of WITCH (We Intend To CauseHavoc) Zambia’s most popular rock band of the 1970s and documents the life of its lead singer, Jagari, whose name is an Africanisation of MickJagger's. Through the resurrection of music that was forgotten by many and unheard by most, the film explores the life of a former African rockstar and the excitement around the rediscovery of his music by a new generation of Western fans. Following Jagari's life from his birth in a mud-hut village, through to his Zambian superstardom in the 70s while playing the bands unique blend of heavy psychedelic rock and African rhythms we then delve into his private life, as an arrest and prison sentence in the 90s turned him into a religious devotee and a miner, until thanks to the film's events and collaborator she would perform in front of adoring crowds on his first-ever European tour in 2017, 40 years after his last album was released.


The film will be followed by a Q&A.
