AFROTOPIA Film Series: April 29 to May 3, 2015
The AFROTOPIA Film Series (AFS) is a celebration of the experimental and fantastic in filmmaking from the African diaspora. Time bends, the apocalypse comes alive and the cosmos becomes our home in this curated mix of shorts, documentaries, art videos, animation, and feature length films. Curated by Ingrid LaFleur, AFS presents a cross-section of science fiction and fantasy award-winning films. Our mission is to highlight and encourage images and stories that offer visionary perspectives that go beyond stereotypical portrayals of the African diaspora. This spring AFS will do just that. We invite you to be a part of this movement, the imagination movement that is AFS.
