2010 may just be the year of groundbreaking sci-fi films by talented black womyn. 🙂

As a former geek who was never really ‘into’ sci-fi’, till I found the likes of Nalo Hopkinson, Octavia Butler &  Samuel Delany, then ‘discovered’ my true true love…..watching this trailer for Pumzi the first time, en ALSO  finding out that Brown Girl in The Ring is being shopped around for a feature length film, well that made me practically cream my pants today😉

Pumzi is officially the first Kenyan ‘sci-fi’ film, although that might just be a matter of perspective en semantics…all depends on your understanding of science AND  fiction…but still, the fact that it was directed by Wanuri Kahiu, an East Afrikan womyn, well that’s more precious than the pioneer status that Kathryn Bigelow got with the Hurt Locker, although even that, in the end, is all jus’ relative, depending on one’s investment in hollywood & using the arts for social change.

the future
