Afrofuturismo: An Afrofuturism Film Fest in Brazil runs through December 2. Titled Afrofuturismo: Cinema, Music and the Intergalactic Diaspora, the event kicked off last Thursday, and is held at the famed Caixa Belas Artes movie theater and entertainment complex in Sao Paulo. Program curators contacted Bar Star City's Ytasha Womack to include a chapter of her book Afrofuturism in the event's catelog (translated into Portuguese of course)
The fest includes the classic Space is the Place featuring jazz legend Sun Ra and the new Ethiopian film Crumbs. Can't wait for Bar Star City to appear in the fest next year. Read the Shadow & Act story here.
