Italian filmmaker Raffaele Mosca certainly has a wide range of musical tastes. From Pig Destroyer, a grindcore/death metal band from Virginia to Gaslight Anthem, a punk rock group from New Jersey, to name a few, the decision to travel to South Africa to make the documentary March of the Gods: Botswana Metalheads is interesting.

After he graduated from Fondazione Milano, a school that trains people so they can work in the television, film or new media industry, the jobs did not come easy. He jumped between London and Milan a lot before he finally said, “Fuck it. I had to shoot this movie. I owed it to myself.”

Yes, even the people from South Africa are also born to bang their heads. The heavy metal scene is excellently explored in March of the Gods: Botswana Metalheads and this documentary makes for a great primer into this world located deep south. But this land-locked country located between Namibia (in the west) and Zimbabwe (the east) with South Africa proper (south) has come a long way in a continent often plagued with internal strife. When this country’s economy is dependent on diamond mine production, what’s next will depend on what other trades will emerge as exportable.
