Black to the Future


Afrofuturism could be described as reimagining the histories and futures of African people to include a scientific, technological and philosophical contribution that is typically overlooked. It is a genre that is displayed across various art forms. The films selected here showcase Afrofuturism within the diaspora as a mode of connecting with Africa itself. The directors have taken inspiration from their Western surroundings as well as making Africa visible through themes such as spirituality, history and identity.
