Afro Brazilian Futurism

Saturday 18th June

This programme of science fiction filmmaking by Afro-Brazilian filmmakers showcases the range of styles associated with imagining and re-imagining Black futures.


These ideas and references take in connections to the African diaspora, using the freedom granted by science fiction to tell stories which address social inequality, legacies of racial inequality and the politics of Black identity.

The Brazilian filmmakers in this programme use their cinema to place the Black body in the centre of their films, in doing so addressing a perceived lack of representation and visibility across popular Brazilian audio-visual culture. The programme of shorts, highlights the exciting visual language of Black science fiction coming out of Brazil, and a younger generation of emerging filmmakers.
