CINSSU, OPIRG Toronto and Pleasure Dome — Cinema Politica’s The Next 150: Documentary Futurism

September 29 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

$5 – $10

From the facebook event:

OPIRG Toronto and Pleasure Dome bring Cinema Politica’s The Next 150: Documentary Futurism to UofT in collaboration with the Cinema Studies Student Union and the Cinema Politica Network

This event is part of DisOrientation 2018 – Our Voices, Our Time

How do we document that which has yet to occur? Cinema Politica’s The Next 150: Documentary Futurism project seeks to usher in a new kind of filmmaking that brings actuality into conversation with speculation, realism with fantasy. Taking inspiration from Afro-futurism, Indigenous futurism, speculative fiction and non-fiction, Cinema Politica has commissioned 15 short films to inaugurate this new genre. Works created under the rubric of documentary futurism deploy filmmaking approaches and contexts associated with documentary in order to imagine, speculate and represent a “Canada” of the future.

This program is a curated selection from the new films produced in this innovative commissioned program and includes new works by Brishkay Ahmed, Mylène Augustin & Feven Ghebremariam, Andrew Chiu, Andréanne Germain, Lari Jalbert, Jeremy Sandor, and Roberto Santaguida.
