A journey between hope and dystopia in a hallucinated Kinshasa, Zombies goes from the culture of the hair salon to futuristic clubbing, and from urban parades to the glory of a dictator and a modern western. On the way, it interrogates the almost carnal relationship we have with our phones, outgrowths of the hand that give us the talent of digital ubiquity.
