Black Earth Rising - BBC2

Beautiful animations within this new BBC drama that bring the tragic story of the genocide to life.

Black Earth Rising is a balance between the political tension and the real life traumatic experiences of the genocide in this hard hitting drama series.

Michaela Coel makes a powerful depiction of the emotional complexities of trying to do more than just survive the genocide. We see her tension and anger controlled and held back but quietly shows itself in moments of vulnerability.

I am so pleased this story is being told in such a sensitive way.
