Details

IN/FLUX is a series of three DVDs centering on experimental film and video from the African world. The violence and the pleasures, the contradictions, fears and desires of a planet shaped by the postcolonial condition, the present-future of our common humanity in a global, 21st century system shot through with radical change: these are the foci of IN/FLUX, addressed from Africa and her diasporas by creators who reject easy approached or answers. The works included in the first DVD centre on the dual theme of movement and replacement. They consider shifts in time, place and psyche, in imaginaries and (pre)conceptions, played out on urban stages deployed as laboratories for the elaboration of alternative perceptual fields. A range of genres is represented: documentary gazes and Afrofuturist takes, spy camera zoom-ins and travels through virtual landscapes, (mock) music video and horror flick aesthetics. The results is a (media) trip through multiple universes; inner worlds, dreamscapes and in-your-face reality checks.
