KinoWatt Screening: FutureStates "Remigration," "That Which Once Was" & "White"
About April's Feature Film:
What will become of America in five, 25, or even 50 years from today? The Independent Television Service (ITVS) asked both renowned and emerging filmmakers to take the current state of affairs in the United States, and extrapolate them into stories of the nation in the not-so-distant future. The result is FUTURESTATES, a series of groundbreaking digital shorts. Each episode presents a different filmmaker's vision of American society projected forward, fusing an exploration of social issues with elements of speculative and science fiction. This month we'll be screening three of the filmsREMIGRATION by Barry Jenkins, THAT WHICH ONCE WAS by Kimi Takesue, and WHITE by A. Sayeeda Clarke, which is your opportunity watch them on the big screen and engage in dialogue with fellow audience members.
The screening begins at 8:00pm
