Cleveland premiere!


Belgium, France, Germany, Lebanon | 2017 | Alain Gomis


Winner of six 2017 Africa Movie Academy Awards (the most ever for any film), this riveting drama focuses on a single Congolese mother in modern-day Kinshasa who ekes out at living as a nightclub singer. But when her teenage son is hospitalized after an accident, she desperately scours the city for financial help, even turning to a local mob boss who has eyes for her. Great soundtrack. A 2017 New York Film Festival selection. “A sensual, sometimes hopeful, sometimes disturbing urban tapestry with threads of image, sound, poetry, and song.” –Variety. Subtitles. DCP. 123 min.
