In her smart, brash, punkishly DIY sophomore feature, director Jenna Bass uses the “body swap” cinematic formula to explore complicated issues of race and gender in the supposed “rainbow nation” of post-apartheid South Africa. Shot entirely on an iPhone, it’s the story of four friends on a camping trip who awake to discover they’ve all scrambled identities—a situation that leads to both personal chaos and political insight.
