Baloji Tshiani // Belgium, Congo // 2019 // 14:00 min

Experimental, Live Action

A journey between hope and dystopia in a hallucinated Kinshasa, from the culture of the hair salon to a futuristic clubbing, from the urban parade to the glory of a dictator in an election campaign to a modern western. A musical trip through glittery underground worlds and colourful Kinhsasa streets, as well as a comment on the omnipresence of mobile phones in people's everyday lives.
