Description

Expertly laced with visual humor, Sabali is a gorgeously stylized, wryly comic drama about a train-ticket seller with heart and relationship problems. From the very first moments, director McKenna and his partner, art director/costume designer Becca Blackwood, establish a dreamy parallel world, featuring costumes in eye-popping primary colors, timeless-looking locations, and peculiar people and conversations that wouldn’t be out of place in Twin Peaks. The film’s appealingly quirky vibe also includes a cameo (and music) by the blind musical duo Amadou & Mariam.
