Kaniama Show is a satire of national TV in a country of Africa, spreading its propaganda of soft power between complaisant interviews and musical interludes.
PEAU DE CHAGRIN
“My love, can we tie the futile to the pleasant before it is reduced to a skin of sorrows?”
A journey between hope and dystopia in an hallucinated Kinshasa, Zombies features a hair salon, futuristic clubbing, urban parades, and a dictator campaigning to the modern West. The film questions the almost carnal relationship we have with our phones, which are outgrowths of the hand and bestow on us the “talent” of digital ubiquity.
Baloji is currently on tour, and is coming to NYC directly from a benefit concert in Rwanda for this screening and Q/A. There is a suggested admission of $15, but pay whatever you like, and no one will be turned away. There will be a cost-free catered reception and panel discussion.
