Directed by John Akomfrah | 1997
"An over-the-top fantasy, an improvisational riff on time and history."
—Chicago Reader

The influential Black Audio Film Collective crafted this experimental blend of sci-fi parable and essay film, which also serves as an essential primer on the aesthetics and dynamics of contemporary Afrofuturism. Interviews with esteemed musicians, writers, and cultural critics are interwoven with the fictional story of the “data thief,” who must travel through time and space in search of the code that holds the key to his future.

Panel Discussion: 
 

Exploring Afrofuturism

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion about the ever-evolving Afrofuturist movement with director Terence Nance, writer and editor at The New Inquiry Derica Shields, and associate curator at the Studio Museum in Harlem Naima J. Keith, moderated by series curator Ashley Clark.
