Located in Quebec? Debuting today: Documentary Futurism!
Their exciting Documentary Futurism project is celebrating their 15th anniversary and as a result are hosting some exciting activities to acknowledge this milestone:
Today is the office premiere of a whopping 15 short films produced as part of their Documentary Futurism initiative at the Cinémathèque québécoise. Each film was commissioned by Cinema Politica in late 2017 with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts’ New Chapter program, and seeks to inaugurate a new cinematic dubbed “Documentary Futurism”. The impressive projects draw inspiration from the likes of Afrofuturism, Indigenous futurism, speculative fiction and non-fiction to envision and represent a Canada 150 years into the future.
Other standout films recommended by Cinema Politica include Breath Anew, which chronicles a refugee passing down their experience for generations to come; NOVA, a film dealing with memory and connection in an age of augmented reality and gamified existence; and Here and Mars, about a young female astronaut set to embark on a journey to Mars.
