Here, the stigmatized immigrant aliens are aliens from outer space, the Nigerians are the good guys, a family’s “putting down roots” acquires novel implications, prosthetic body parts bypass the usual assumptions, and genocide turns up where you least expect it. This playful allegory joins evocative, beautiful art with a wild imagination and mind-bending plot that comes off as both sad and hopeful. A creative commentary on xenophobia and recent U.S. immigration bans.
