The film explains how the specific genre of death metal became a source of healing for war-torn orphans and how their passion for music became a movement that could inspire others.
Before the film, Ariel Plotek, Ph.D., Associate Curator of Modern Art will introduce will introduce the documentary together with Alfredo Jaar’s Muxima, a video installation which uses folk music to tell a contemporary narrative about the African country of Angola. Jaar has completed several projects throughout Africa including Nigeria and, most notably, Rwanda.
