Omen Trailer Reveals the African Witchcraft of Acclaimed Cannes Film

Utopia has unveiled the North American trailer for its supernatural drama, Omen. The film, which marks the directorial feature debut of hip-hop artist turned filmmaker Baloji, follows Koffi (Marc Zinga), a young Congolese man who — after living in Belgium for years — returns to his birthplace of Kinshasa with his pregnant fiancée (Lucie Debay) to confront enduring issues with his family. Koffi’s familial conflicts date back to his childhood: after his mother decided that a birthmark was a sign he was a sorcerer, he was banished to Belgium. The trailer, which you can watch below, teases a tense tale that integrates cultural beliefs with fractured family dynamics.
