First Friday Films: Death Metal Angola
Death Metal Angola chronicles the efforts of a group of orphans in Huambo, Angola, to organize and implement the country's first rock concert. 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.
This documentary will be screened in conjunction with the Museum's exhibition of Alfredo Jaar's work Muxima, 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.
