Afrofuturism Shortfilm ‘Jonah’ (2013)

Screening is part of the symposium AfroFuturism Conference: ‘A future beyond the global colour line?’ Hosted by AfricAvenir International e.V.

Afrofuturism is one of our greatest artistic forms of therapy. Although underrated, it has inspired and comforted black people for several decades, while simultaneously granting us the freedom to express various creative sides of ourselves. It has helped us cope. It’s helped us believe in a better tomorrow. By writing, drawing, singing, dancing or strutting our stuff into the future, we uncovered the secret to rewriting our present
