Documentary: Death Metal Angola - "The Hardest Hardcore is Angolan Hardcore"

Angola has had its share of challenges, including a civil war that lasted decades after independence in November 1975. Many of the country's musicians are expressing their anger and pain through Death Metal.
'Death Metal Angola' documents this reality, we have the trailer right here for you. The movie debuted a few days ago at the Dubai International Film Festival. Director Jeremy Xido, referred to us by none other than Saul Williams, told us: "aside from the two theaters full of people, no one has seen the movie yet".
Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think! - L C-D

" 'The Hardest Hardcore is Angolan Hardcore'
Sonia Ferreira and Wilker Flores live and breathe hardcore rock and roll. They run the Okutiuka orphanage in the war-ravaged city of Huambo, Angola and dream of mounting the first-ever national rock concert. Raucous and righteous, DEATH METAL ANGOLA follows their story, giving audiences a look at a rock show off the grid that is fulfilling, haunting, and real."

Great stuff! Glad to see some of the continent scene get some media attention.

For all of you interested , check the Kenyan metal scene and the Botswana scene (Zambia got an rock scene too back in the day with a style called zamrock).
