Description

"Kinetic and full of promise."—Lovia Gyarkye, Hollywood Reporter

"Announces its writer-director as an artist of significant formal imagination and daring, unafraid to put standard narrative legibility at risk in favor of intuitive sensory suggestion."—Guy Lodge, Variety

"A visually striking, deeply compassionate, and memorable debut."—Arjun Sajip, indieWire

After spending years in Belgium, Koffi, a young Congolese man, returns to his birthplace of Kinshasa to confront his family and homeland culture. Secrecy and sorcery erupt when a nosebleed is mistaken for a curse, and Koffi is shunned from his family. Using magical realism to paint a portrait of “undesirables” and “sorcerers,” this debut feature delves into the intricacies of identity, culture, and belief systems through a deeply rich and visually captivating lens.
