    I don’t like the song or band at all but the video is great, everything Ben Wheatley’s done so far is great in fact.

    At 8PM on Monday 26th August @ Spectacle Theater we’re excited to be screening the second instalment of “The Future Weird” a recurring series of futuristic/weird films by black/African/global south directors.

    This month, we’re working with the title “The Future Weird: Black Atlantis” to present 90 minutes of shorts which plunge headfirst into underwater worlds. We’re thrilled to be showing films by young filmmakers Akosua Adoma Owusu, Nikyatu Jusu and Bolaji Kekere-Ekun and to present the U.S. Premiere of Simon Rittmeier’s film Drexciya. We’re doing this thing! Come through if you’re in NYC.

    p.s. The Future Weird now has its very own tumblr. More there, below, and on the facebook event page


    "According to Afrofuturist legend, Drexciya is a sunken land inhabited by the children of African women drowned during the Middle Passage. Since they were never born, these children continued to breathe underwater: first through amniotic fluid, then through lungs better suited to their aquatic world. Join us on Monday 26 August, at 8PM as we go in search of the “Black Atlantis”.

    "Black Atlantis" is an evening of short films that treat water as a cleansing force through which our bodies may be reborn, and as a site of memory where disappeared and suppressed things resurface, wash up, or return to us as detritus. Through myths that traverse the Black diaspora we meet a beautiful and dangerous sea goddess named Mami Wata, and encounter a deep-sea leviathan. Following tourists and then refugees fleeing Europe, we consider stories of migration, slavery and commerce, high seas adventure, and the thrill and terror of being haunted by an unknown past.

    WHEN: Monday, August 26 @ 8 PM + @ 10PM

    WHERE: Spectacle Theater, 124 South 3rd Street, Brooklyn, New York

    WHAT: A 90 minute program of shorts. Includes the U.S. Premiere of Simon Rittmeier’s Drexciya (2012), snippets from the colonial archive, and films by Nikyatu Jusu, Kibwe Tavares, Barry Jenkins, and Akosua Adoma Owusu’s award-winning experimental short Drexciya (2010)
