Photographing vichimbakazi is a 1997 ethereal ndoto film directed kwa Nick Willing and is based on the novel kwa Steve Szilagyi. It was influenced kwa the infamous Cottingley vichimbakazi hoax. (The vichimbakazi appear in a series of five photographs taken kwa Elsie Wright (1901–88) and Frances Griffiths (1907–86) in 1917)
Photographer Charles ngome (Toby Stephens) is beside himself with grief following the death of his new bride on their honeymoon.
He goes to war, working as a photographer in the trenches, photographing corpses. Following the war Charles earns his living making trick picha of dead soldiers for bereaved parents, when he is shown some photographs purporting to be of fairies. His tafuta for the truth leads him to a village in Burkinwell, where he becomes enamoured with two British girls' assertion that they cavorted with fairies.
A visually stunning and surreal movie with spectacular cinematography and an excellent cast, it explores multiple folklore themes including; paganism, possession, hallucinogens and parapsychology.
