About Maona Art presents Omen

Koffi receives a frosty reception when he introduces his pregnant fiancé to his family. An incident with his nephew convinces them that he’s possessed by an evil spirit and as Koffi struggles to find himself and return to normality, he stumbles upon a bizarre spiritual world that takes him upon a dizzying collision course with his culture.

A deserving winner of Cannes’ Un Certain Regard New Vision Award, Baloji’s magical realist drama is a dazzling debut.
