Inside Afrofuturism: A Sonic Companion is a session that’s part of Inside Afrofuturism, a season of films exploring the world of Afrofuturism during the British Film Institute’s 3-month long program “Sci-Fi: Days of Fear and Wonder.” Check out music videos and tracks at the BFI’s website.

The British Film Institute’s juggernaut of a celebration of sci-fi runs from October to December, 2014, and includes viewings and events at more than 120 locations all across the UK. In a perfect (or even much better) world, we’d take 3 months out of life, attend every session and report back on our experiences. It sounds incredible.
The ongoing program’s 3-day collection of sessions, “Inside Afrofuturism” runs November 29-December 1, and will feature cultural analysis, music, film, and discussion.
On November 30, the session Exploring Afrofuturism: “The Last Angel of History” will give participants the chance to view and discuss John Akomfrah’s 1996 “sci-fi parable and essay” The Last Angel of History.
