KITE ZO A (Leave The Bones) (2023) SXSW 2023

Oh Werner Herzog- your cinematic children are making the most glorious films.

This film is a grand mythic look at the rituals happening in Haiti and it is a cinematic sensory trip the likes of which I have never seen. This film has such a mind blowing collection of sights and sounds that it’s kind of like watching a Werner Herzog documentary that was on a crazed mix of acid and speed.  This is a film I was watching eyes wide, mouth agape except when I put my lips together simply so say “oh my god”

I watched this on a small computer monitor- and I have no idea how it will play on a screen bigger than life- but god damn I want to find out.

I am frequently asked why do I go to festivals or why do I search out smaller films, and my answer is to find films that move my soul, that shatter my being and put it together in an entirely new way.  I want to see films that make me fall in love with the movies and the wonder of life. Basically I want to see films like KITE ZO A.

You must see this film- particularly on the big screen where it can overwhelm you.
