Black communities in Chicago, Detroit, and Durham use Afrofuturism as a tool to inspire young people, organize politically and economically, and reimagine the spaces around them in this captivating experimental documentary. Short movements ranging from interviews to verité-driven scenes take us from an Afrofuturist youth center in Durham, NC to Chicago’s south side to reimagine a historic university and finally to a Wakanda-inspired Afrofuturism convention where race is deconstructed as a technology. “A Galaxy Sits in the Cracks” asks us to reconsider our future through the lens of Afrofuturist youth who are making bold moves all over the country. 

Screening in the Twisted Deceiver Shorts Block.
