Exterminate All the Brutes

Exterminate All the Brutes Exterminate All the Brutes

A black British rap poet/activist travels across West Africa in search of the meaning of Joseph Conrad’s chillingly immortal phrase ‘exterminate all the brutes’. Encounters and discoveries along the journey suggest a surprising and poetic way out of colonialism’s lingering Heart of Darkness. An epic film-essay that combines documentary reportage, musical performance, historical investigation, drama, text readings, and experiment.
