Facing accusations of witchcraft and sorcery, four individuals must make peace with the demands tradition and family make on the soul. Congolese Belgian rapper-turned-filmmaker Baloji makes cast a spell with his beguiling blend of mounting surrealism set against an African phantasmagoria in this tale of a Belgian man, Koffi, played by Marc Zinga (seen most recently in the Dardenne brothers’ TORI AND LOKITA who must return home is marred by repudiation and suspicion. The official Belgian entry to the 2024 Best International Picture Oscar race, this Cannes Un Certain Regard title and winner of Cannes’ New Vision award announces the arrival of a major filmmaking talent.
