Black Is King

Parkwood Entertainment

Beyoncé’s critically acclaimed musical film and visual album “Black is King” tells the story of a young African prince (Folajomi Akinmurele) who is exiled from his kingdom after the death of his father. As he grows up into a man (Nyaniso Dzedze), the prince undergoes a journey of self-identity, using the guidance of his

ancestor (Beyoncé), childhood love (Nandi Madida) and his
own subconscious (Stephen Ojo) to reclaim his throne. Rob van den Bragt from Chocolate Tribe was on-set as the VFX Supervisor for the South African part of the shoot.
