How do we document that which has yet to occur? Cinema Politica’s Documentary Futurism project seeks to usher in a new kind of filmmaking that brings actuality into conversation with speculation, and realism with the imaginary. Taking inspiration from Afro-futurism, Indigenous futurism, speculative fiction and non-fiction, these 15 films inaugurate a new genre while deploying filmmaking approaches and contexts associated with documentary in order to imagine, speculate and represent future worlds.
To learn more, visit the official website of the project and watch the programme’s trailer. For updates on the project, visit the Documentary Futurism Facebook page and follow @docfuturism on Twitter & Instagram.
