Q&A with Baloji, dir. Zombies - Clermont 2020 PRIX FESTIVALS CONNEXION AUVERGNE-RHÔNE-ALPES

Tuesday 11 February 2020, by Clotilde Couturier

The film "Zombie" is a journey between hope and dystopia in a hallucinated Kinhsasa, from the culture of the hair salon to futuristic solitary clubbing, from the urban parade to the glory of a dictator in campaign (Papa Bollo) to modern western in the Takeshi Kitano style. In parallel, the film is based on the almost carnal relationship we have with our phones. The device becoming like an outgrowth of the hand and giving us the talent of digital ubiquity...

Baloji is a multidisciplinary artist; filmmaker, musician, poet... Zombies is a testimony to his dexterity as a multidisciplinary artist. From disparate elements and urban chaos, the film comes beautifully together, leaving us dazed and uneasy at the multitude of screens.

The film is available to watch online!
