Rapper-turned-filmmaker Baloji’s directorial debut is a magic-realist tale of family, relationships, suspicion and belonging. Following Koffi’s (Zinga) return to his birthplace, it explores the weight of beliefs on one’s destiny through four intertwined characters accused of sorcery. In a visually extravagant and entertainingly humorous depiction of troubling Congolese themes, Baloji guides his film into the phantasmagoria of Africa.
