DEATH METAL ANGOLA
Sonia Ferreira and Wilker Flores live and breathe extreme 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.

The film will be followed by a Q+A with filmmaker Jeremy Xido.
