Death Metal Angola

Synopsis

In the ruins of a city devastated by war, Sonia Ferreira and Wilker Flores who manage an orphanage have a crazy idea: put on a rock festival. If you think death metal was invented in the United States or a Norwegian forest, don’t be so sure! These rhythms come from the dark heart of Africa, in Angola. After 27 years of civil war, more than half a million civilians died. This music reveals the entire trauma endured by a new generation but manages to turn it into hope.
