This 34 part filmic poem reinterprets traditional opera conventions to ask: 'What happens to the black body when it is haunted by "a blackness" outside of it?'

The spoken, sung and screamed libretto (by poet and activist Dawn Lundy Martin) explores the consequences of centuries of global racial strife thrust upon those of African descent.
