Detroit Film Theatre


AFROFUTURIST CINEMA SERIES

Saturday, January 28, 2017 – Saturday, April 15, 2017

9:30 PM

The DFT has invited AFROTOPIA founder Ingrid LaFleur to guest curate a series of films exploring the art of Afrofuturism. African Diaspora writers, musicians and visual artists began exploring black futures through the lens of techno-culture and science fiction in the 1990s, and in recent decades filmmakers have contributed important works to this aesthetic movement. LaFleur will introduce screenings and moderate conversations afterwards with the audience, film artists and community-based guest speakers.
