Defiantly uncompromising throughout, Onwurah’s film traces the legacy of slavery in the racial tensions and police brutality of the present, when a sprawling black ghetto known as the Terrordome plunges into chaos following the actions of a grieving mother. Onwurah draws inspiration from mythological slave narratives, Afrofuturism and Greek tragedy.
