Synopsis

A journey between hope and dystopia in a hallucinated Kinshasa, from the culture of the hair salon to futuristic solitary clubbing, from an urban parade to a dictator’s sense of glory to a modern western in the style of Takeshi Kitano.

Our take

Today we launch our 4th annual partnership with the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen, from which we selected five of our favorite films from their 2019 competition. First up is this satirical, vibrant dance espousing the nature of technology and modern existence in Kinshasa, Congo.
