Black Radical Imagination
Black Radical Imagination was co-founded by Erin Christovale and Amir George in 2013 and is an international touring program of experimental short films emphasizing new stories from within the African diaspora. The series builds on afrofuturist, afrosurrealist and magical realist aesthetics to interrogate identity in the context of cinema.
Black Radical Imagination is curated by Amir George and is composed of the artists Ephraim Asili, Dana Washington and Sudé Woods. The notion of the Black Radical Imagination stemmed from a series of discussions around the boundaries and limitations that are historically placed upon people of color : "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.
