Thought-provoking films on losing and reclaiming ground.

“Knowing this history better, understanding the forces it has unleashed, and seeing oneself as part of a longer story, is one of the ways in which we can keep trying to move forward.”

We invite you to explore the rich and varied perspectives of African Diaspora experiences from transatlantic cultures. Neither here nor there, the ‘in-betweenness’ and collective longing for our ancestral source affects our view of the world and galvanises us to continually demand for a dignified life without the persistent dehumanisation of colonial and post-colonial structures. This strand explores illusions about race, the possibilities of Afrofuturist worlds and the battle for individual, personal ideals.
