Saturday, Jun 22 at 08:00PM
The idea of death metal sweeping a nation torn by political violence might seem absurdor absurdly fittingto an outsider, but that's exactly what happens in Jeremy Xido's lauded, hyper-real new documentary. Sonia and Wilker run an orphanage in Angola's capital for a handful of the nation's thousands of orphans, born into a civil tempest that calmed barely ten years ago. Into the silence that follows war, Wilker and other death metal musicians bring the release of noise, and of a nationwide musical community that comes together in a benefit concert to benefit Sonia's orphanage.
