BFI programmes Inside Afrofuturism events

Throughout November and December the BFI will be hosting a series of films and discussions exploring themes surrounding Afrofuturism.

Running as part of the BFI's Sci-Fi: Days Of Fear And Wonder programme, Inside Afrofuturism aims to highlight "key cinematic works that have engaged with, inspired or been inspired by this ever-evolving stylistic and intellectual cornucopia." Notable events include a screening of John Coney's 1974 film starring Sun Ra, Space Is The Place, Shirley Clarke's 1985 documentary Ornette: Made In America, Lizzie Borden's sci-fi feminist film Born In Flames, and a discussion between Afrika Bambaataa and Don Letts.
