Black Radical Imagination: Fugitive Trajectories

May 11 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Black Radical Imagination: Fugitive Trajectories is a film showcase programmed by Jheanelle Brown and Darol Olu Kae, originally co-founded by Erin Christovale and Amir George.

Black Radical Imagination is an international touring program of experimental short films emphasizing new stories from within the African diaspora. The series builds on afro futurist, afro surrealist, and magical realist aesthetics to interrogate identity in the context of cinema. Black Radical Imagination has screened in museums, art spaces, and film festivals, most notably MCA Chicago, MoMA PS1, Black Star Film Festival, and articule in Montréal.

This year’s showcase, FUGITIVE TRAJECTORIES meditates on the ways black people tend to the complexities of our lives while forced to move within, through, and around structuring narratives of power, violence, confinement, and trauma—thereby negotiating how the multi-dimensionality of diasporic blackness is understood in relationship to prevailing notions of death, resistance, and freedom. The films featured in this program explore concepts of grief, kinship, an idealized homeland, and the dynamism of blackness and black culture.

“Without new visions, we donʼt know what to build, only what to knock down. We not only end up confused, rudderless, and cynical, but we forget that making a revolution is not a series of clever maneuvers and tactics, but a process that can and must transform us.”
— Robin D.G. Kelley, Freedom Dreams: The Black Radical Imagination
