France-Senegal-Belgium-Germany-Lebanon 2017
Dir Alain Gomis
With Véro Tshanda Beya Mputu, Gaetan Claudia, Papi Mpaka
English subtitles
Released by MUBI

This innovative and compelling drama follows a popular, charismatic singer in the Congolese capital who struggles to care for her son in the face of tragedy. With moments of poetic magical realism, the film features actors alongside non-actors in an authentic yet universal story. The Kasai Allstars and Symphony Orchestra of Kinshasa (performing the music of Arvo Pärt) provide much more than musical accompaniment in this terrific highlight from the 2017 BFI London Film Festival, which also won the Silver Bear in Berlin last year.

Tickets £6.50
