In my review of Djo Tunda Wa Munga's crime drama, Viva Riva!, I highlighted the film's audacious depictions of the kind of orchestrated sexuality and violence rarely seen in African cinema (specifically cinema of the DRC - the Democratic Republic Of The Congo, where such scenes are taboo).

The below red-band trailer which just surfaced, really only teases the breadth of the film's unapologetic raunch and brutality, despite being a red band trailer.

I had the pleasure of chatting with director Djo Munga earlier this week, and he was thankfully very expressive; I'll have that interview for you all shortly. In the meantime, check out the red-band trailer below.

It opens in US theaters on June 10th, next week Friday, and in UK theaters on June 24th:

    Ok...I said in the MTV Awards post that Manie Malone should be in the Best Kiss category - I firmly stand by what I said!
