“Afrofuturism”, that is the future of Africa projected by the Africans.
The idea is to reclaim the history of Africa, often told by others and which often do not encompass the real image of Africa.
In every field of art, the creativity on the continent is quite impressive.
Cinema is not left out, when you speak of the future.
But Afrofuturism is not just imagining Africa’s future full of science fiction. It gives room for other ideas. An example, a film by Beninese filmmaker Sylvestre Amoussou, who made a movie where Africa dominates the world.
The film is called “Africa Paradis”. The story is set in 2033 when Africa becomes advanced and Europe is experiencing an unprecedented crisis. As a result, millions of poverty-stricken Europeans try to reach the African continent in order to find work and survive. The opposite of what is happening now with the migrant crisis.
