DESCRIPTION

Shot in Mali, Neil Beloufa’s Kempinski (2007) is a science fiction documentary featuring interviews with local inhabitants as they imagine their visions of the future. Through a series of striking tableaux, Beloufa captures a sense of vertigo and unease by adeptly interweaving fantasy with reality. Algerian and French, Beloufa was born 1985 in Paris. This will be his first presentation in a US museum.
