Kemba – Nobody I Can Trust
Production / Ghost Robot
Starring / Melvin Mogoli
An absurdist narrative video, using tropes from zombie movies to satirize race relations. GET OUT meets GROUNDHOG DAY.
Kemba plays a fry cook in an aggressively retro-Americana suburb. In a loop of the same 3 scenes that make up his day-to-day routine-
Each day, beginning with a different African-American person getting arrested, on Kemba’s walk to work.
And as more and more Black men get locked away, Kemba begins to notice the town’s attitude toward him shifting eerily.
Micro-aggressions, bubbling over into something even more sinister.
