Last year, local artist Alisha B. Wormsley declared that there are, in fact, Black people in the future with her East Liberty billboard project of the same name, which sparked controversy after it was taken down. Apparently, she also meant imagined futures, as is the case with her film The Children of NAN, screening at the August Wilson Cultural Center during the Black Bottom Film Festival. Described as a metaphor for the survival and power of Black women, the futuristic dystopian film tells the story of Aditi 34, who escapes life in an underground lab where she was created by her maker, the Scientist. Event includes a Q&A with Wormsley.
