A Galaxy Sits in The Cracks

Directed by Amber Love

“A Galaxy Sits in the Cracks” is a short experimental documentary engaging with the ways 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 a set of short movements ranging from interviews to verité-driven scenes, we spend time in an Afrofuturist youth center in Durham, NC, reimagine a historic university on Chicago’s south side, deconstruct race as a technology at a Wakanda-inspired Afrofuturism convention, and think about Afrofuturism’s political and technological implications for the future of Detroit.
