Blacknuss Network and Blacknuss.tv present “We Fly Away Home”, a film and discussion series on Afrofuturism in Cinema. This event forms part of Carnegie Hall’s Afrofuturism festival. We will explore in cinema, the world of Afrofuturism–an ever-expansive aesthetic and practice–where music, visual arts, science fiction, and technology intersect to imagine alternate realities and a liberated future viewed through the lens of Black cultures.
Blacknuss.tv is not just a streaming channel, but a mission to build a sustainable channel with a subscription base supporting and producing new and original content from up-and-coming new talent. Presenting an eclectic mix of thematic Public domain content, the programs include new compelling works by Black independent filmmakers. Original programming will include short dramas, new original documentaries, African AfroFuturist short films from Burkina Faso, and all over the global Black Diaspora.
The We Fly Away Home series will take place online Feb 6th and 20th and again on March 6th and 20th. It will be presented on the WatchBeem.com platform. The series will begin with a program on the Black image in Science fiction, from the first images in the silent era during the French surrealist period, continuing to the creation of fantasy and visionary imagery in the early independent Black cinema of the 1930s. After a 30 year gap, Black characters are presented in the futuristic visions of Italian and Eastern European socialist films.
Moving into the late 1950s thru the ’70s, we witness Black filmmakers like Audrey Lewis, whose 1993 feature film “The Gifted” made use of the Dogon creation myth. Part of her research required her to make a trip to The Cliffs of Bandiagara, Land of the Dogons, in the Mopti Region of Mali.
