“Drifting and dreamy, Mati Diop’s films proceed (sometimes haphazardly) like phantasms of the mind, travelling over bodies that are magnetically drawn together, whether it be for comfort or lust (or especially the interstice where the two meet), or in order to access distant lands that are remembered, yearned for, or fancifully concocted. As if enveloped by a flushed, hallucinatory heat, her films emanate steam even in cold climes. Above all, they are nakedly human, peopled by characters who are fearful yet resolute, consumed by desire and full of gumption, who ultimately interrupt the seemingly helpless flow of their lives by taking risks, by fleeing, by exercising their intuition and, most importantly, by being vulnerable in their solitude.” — Andrea Picard, CinemaScope
