Kristof Bilsen’s first feature-length documentary is a poetic portrait of people working in the state-run post office, railway station and fire department in Kinshasa, the third largest city in Africa. Serenely composed and slightly ironic, it provides an essential insight into the Democratic Republic of Congo’s bureaucratic machinery, expertly attuned to said nation’s pace of life.
