How do we document that which has yet to occur? Cinema Politicaâ€™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 â€œCanadaâ€ 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, MylÃ¨ne Augustin & Feven Ghebremariam, Andrew Chiu, AndrÃ©anne Germain, Lari Jalbert, Jeremy Sandor, and Roberto Santaguida.
