SeasonBFI London Film Festival at QFT

A deserving winner of Cannes’ Un Certain Regard New Vision Award, rapper-turned-filmmaker Baloji’s magical realist drama is a dazzling debut.

Koffi (Marc Zinga) receives a frosty reception when he introduces his pregnant fiancé to his family. An incident with his nephew convinces them that he’s possessed by an evil spirit and as Koffi struggles to find himself and return to normality, he stumbles upon a bizarre spiritual world that takes him upon a dizzying collision course with his culture.

Please note: this festival screening will start promptly at the advertised time and will not include ads or trailers.

Presented as part of the 67th BFI London Film Festival in partnership with American Express.
