Félicité

A gritty, music-infused drama about a Kinshasa bar singer who comes out of her emotional shell after a brush with misfortune, the fourth feature from French-Senegalese director Alain Gomis (Tey) was one of the standout features at the 2017 Berlin Film Festival. Initially grounded firmly in realism, the film gradually morphs into a dreamlike mood piece and, eventually, a tentative romance.
