Death Metal Angola
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 the audiences a look at a rock show off the grid that is fulfilling, haunting and real.
