“announces its writer-director as an artist of significant formal imagination and daring” (Variety)

“a remarkable accomplishment and a thrilling glimpse into the work of a truly visionary filmmaker” (Alliance of Women Film Journalists)

“It is an undeniably beautiful film that is a prime showcase for Baloji’s talents as a visual storyteller” (Film Inquiry)

*Please take note that doors open 30 minutes before showtimes. We encourage people to arrive early. We have a small box office, a small candy bar, and a single-screen cinema, meaning that when most of an audience shows up a few minutes before showtime, it causes a bottleneck. If possible, we appreciate you arriving a little bit early to pick out your seat and get your popcorn. Thanks for your help!

Between Brussels, Kinshasa and Lubumbashi, Augure borrows from magic realism to paint a portrait of “undesirables” and “sorcerers” through the intertwined stories of protagonists of different genders and generations, confronted with the prejudice and suspicion of those around them.
