"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.
