CHOSEN BY BALOJI
We should film on 16mm... So much depth.
Baloji means 'man of science' in Swahili, but during the colonial period, that meaning shifted, as a result of Christian evangelisation, to signify 'man of the occult sciences' and then 'sorcerer.'
Born in Lubumbashi (DRC Congo) and raised in Belgium, Baloji describes himself as "an artist in motion, a musician, poet, film director, a man of images and ideas." He directs all his own music videos, which are regular features on Nowness.
Tebza chose Baloji's music video for Peau de Chagrin / Bleu De Nuit as his favourite African music video.
