LORDS OF CHAOS (SA Premiere)
South African Premiere
A teenager's quest to launch Norwegian Black Metal in Oslo in the early 1990s results in a very violent outcome.
Based on truth and lies.
In the early ‘90s a new musical genre (germinated in the '80s) rose from Norway: Black Metal
With dark, occult imagery, the renowned black and white corpsepaint and strong anti-Christian sentiments, the abrasive and challenging music went beyond imagery into true darkness, not only resulting in church burnings, but also violence, suicide and murder.
These events were captured in the book Lords Of Chaos.
Directed by Jonas Åkerlund (known for Rammstein and Madonna music videos and films like Spun and Polar), he was also in fact a member of early Swedish Black Metal legends Bathory.
Starring Rory Culkin, Emory Cohen, Jack Kilmer, Sky Ferreira, Valter Skarsgård
