Baloji Democratic Republic of the Congo, 2019

I.Camera's rating of the film Zombies

A surprising burst of noise and colour, and a film that aligns African filmmaking with dance music and the numbing effects of Instagram culture. Perhaps more of an extended music video than a short film (Baloji's background being in music and poetry), but it's one that hints at a tremendous emerging film talent. This is something new, and I especially liked the end credits, framed through a series of text messages.
