African Odysseys presents

Preview: Omen 

This magical realist tale navigates the divide between reality and sorcery, creating a distinctive and often impressionistic portrait of domestic and communal life. Koffi, a young Congolese man, returns to his hometown in Kinshasa and is reunited with his family and culture. However, complexities abound as four individuals find their different worlds and perspectives clashing. The directorial debut from Belgian-Congolese rapper Baloji, Omen won the New Voice prize in Un Certain Regard at the Cannes Film Festival.

Belgium-Democratic Republic of the Congo 2023. Director Baloji. With Marc Zinga, Yves-Marina Gnahoua, Marcel Otete Kabeya. 90min. Digital. French and Swahili with EST. Courtesy of Aya Films
