This piece looks into Kilamba Kiaxi, an urban development in Luanda, and into a young man’s work day to reveal the impact of international capital flows on the global market. The film’s surreal denouement appears to underscore Kilamba Kiaxi’s inadequacy as a real estate project – offering apartments for a price that’s out of reach for the vast majority of Angola’s population – while also reflecting about the absurd working conditions of the contemporary neoliberal system.
