Join Barbican Cinema for "Journeys across Afro-Futurism" a programme that speculates on the impact and directions that the cultural aesthetic, and the ideas of Afro-Futurism, have taken on within the medium of cinema. Establishing the origin of this concept, in filmic terms at least, within an African American context through the figures of Sun Ra, Shirley Clarke and Ornette Coleman, brings together questions of music, social inequality, and African iconography.
