Closing Night celebration - An evening with Baloji

> Sunday, October 21, 6:00PM

“I see music in colors”. Multi-talented rapper-singer-artist Baloji, whose upbringing spans continents and cultures, shares a selection of his music videos and short films. Among the selections are his debut fictional short, Kaniama Show, a blistering satire of African television propaganda, and his eponymous music video, Peau de Chagrin/Bleu de Nuit, a collaboration with South African photographer Kristin-Lee Moolman that explores indigenous Congolese wedding traditions in a panoply of color.

Post-screening Q&A with Baloji and closing night reception with Congolese food + live music
