Baloji Democratic Republic of the Congo, 2019

jsbrocka's rating of the film Zombies

Although criticizing the ever-connected zombie culture isn't anything new, there is a refreshing joie de vivre in the way Baloji tackles this tedious subject. The Congolese-born, Belgium-based multi-hyphenate draws from the electrifying energy of Kinshasa City itself to craft a meticulously art-directed, heavily-stylized, and powerfully-written music video that reveres and ridicules modern Congo at the same time.
