Twenty-five years after the end of the Trojan War, Odysseus still has not returned home. So his son, Telemachus, sets off on an epic journey in search of his lost father.

So begins Homer’s epic poem, The Odyssey - the most revered of ancient epic poems and narrative reference point for John Akomfrah’s unusual and genre defying story about chance, fate and redemption. Structured as an allegorical fable and loosely inspired by existential science fiction, The Nine Muses is a stylized, unusual and idiosyncratic retelling of the history of mass migration to post war Britain through the suggestive lens of the Homeric epic. Divided into nine overlapping musical chapters and mixing a vast array of archival material with shot scenes from the United States and the United Kingdom, The Nine Muses is a modern recasting of Homer’s epic as a ‘song cycle’ on journeys, on migration, on memory and the power of elegy.
