Threaded with mysticism and Congolese witchcraft, musician Baloji’s first feature follows a character’s return home to confront a troubled past. Koffi comes back to his birthplace after
years in Belgium only to be ostracised by his family because of superstition. Baloji, whose name in Swahili means “sorcerer”, abandons conventional narrative and assigns four characters accused of being witches to each tell their own story in parallel to Koffi’s. Fantasy sequences erupt with colour and Mardi Gras street parades weave in elements of ritual, horror and magic. The result is wild and stunning.

“a heart-tugger in the mold of such old-school “inspiring teacher changes everything” tales as “To Sir With Love,” “Dead Poets Society” and even recent Oscar winner “CODA,” with which it shares star Eugenio Derbez.” Tomris Laffly, Variety
