The Most Unsatisfied Town
Based on the death-in-custody of Oury Jalloh and the political movement that arose from the case, The Most Unsatisfied Town takes an intimate look at a community transformed by an unspeakable act of violence. This work-in-progress presentation will be followed by a conversation open to the public with artists and special guests.
Performed by: Martha Fessehatzion, Michael Ojake and David Wurawa
