British Nigerian, Femi Nylander, brings attention to the forgotten victims of colonial atrocity in African Apocalypse. – Activist Femi Nylander unearths the shocking reality of Joseph Conradʼs seminal work, Heart of Darkness. African Apocalypse follows the trail of a 19th century French colonial military commander who burned his way across Africa. Tens of thousands were massacred in the name of imperial domination. With communities still devastated by a century old atrocity speaking out for the first time, Nylander begins to question his own sense of belonging.
