Program 7 – Interstellar

Building out from Indigenous futurisms, this program explores the notion of the present as dystopic and cautions that, unless we change our ways of being, the future will be dystopian too. Combining spoken word, black and white cinematography, and retro-futuristic vibes, this program explores how we navigate “the spaces in-between.”
