«Afro-punk» (James Spooner, 2003, 66 min, USA, English, Color, Digital)

«Afro-punk» follows the lives of four people of color who have dedicated themselves to a punk-rock lifestyle. The film explores issues of loneliness, exile, interracial dating and black power, all thorny examples of the “double consciousness” required to be the only black kid at a punk show.

"[A] beautiful tribute to those valiant individuals who refuse to settle and find a rooted home in white hardcore or a version of Blackness that requires tacit acceptance of sexism and homophobia." — Daniel McNeil, Bright Lights Film Journal

— Preceded by Petite Noir, «Best,» dir: Travys Owen, 4 min, 2015

Program description: Aural Futures

— Curated by Ingrid LaFleur from AFROTOPIA & Negar Mottahedeh at Duke University

Often music is the first introduction to the cultural movement Afrofuturism. “Aural Futures” series looks at how electronic music created a foundation in the development of Afrofuturism, explores the history of certain music movements like Afropunk that have introduced Afrofuturism to a larger audience, and how the Afrofuturist aesthetic is used to visually express the music and provide a narrative.

To complete the music ecosystem, we have curated a selection of Storytellers and performers from Detroit and Durham to create and Afrofuturist evening of musical vibes and visions. Hearing the music, watching the performance and the organic movement that it calls forth is an integral part of the Afrofuturist experience. https://ami.duke.edu/screensociety/aural-futures-series

This event is also part of Visionary Aponte: Art & Black Freedom, a nine-week art exhibit and accompanying series of conversations, screenings, performances, residencies, and workshops at Duke University organized by the Power Plant Gallery and the Forum for Scholars and Publics. The exhibit is curated by Édouard Duval-Carrié and Ada Ferrer and is based on a digital humanities project called Digital Aponte. More information online at aponte.dukefsp.org.
