After spending years in Belgium, Koffi (Marc Zinga), a young Congolese man, returns to his birthplace of Kinshasa to confront his family and homeland culture. Secrecy and sorcery erupt when a nosebleed is mistaken for a curse, and Koffi is shunned from his family. Using magical realism to paint a portrait of “undesirables” and “sorcerers,” OMEN delves into the intricacies of identity, culture, and belief systems through a deeply rich and visually captivating lens.

In English and French, Swahili, & Lingala with English subtitles.

Omen announces its writer-director as an artist of significant formal imagination and daring, unafraid to put standard narrative legibility at risk in favor of intuitive sensory suggestion.” Guy Lodge, Variety

“For a debut feature, Omen is a remarkable accomplishment and a thrilling glimpse into the work of a truly visionary filmmaker who no doubt has many more films to come.” Alexandra Heller-Nicholas, Alliance of Women Film Journalists
