Since we have a week to fill until #BlackPanther I'll kick off an #AfrofuturismShortFilmFestival of black scifi, magical realism and horror. First up is PUMZI (2009) directed by @wanuri Kahiu of Kenya. I love this film!

Before Daniel Kaluuya was W'Kabi in #BlackPanther or an Oscar-nominated actor for Get Out, he starred in this masterful and heartbreaking short film by @kibwetavares, JONAH (2013).
Before @SterlingKBrown made history with his acting awards or was N'Jobu in #BlackPanther he co-starred in this chilling web series pilot, The Abandon (2012), by @keithjosef
Before she took down the Confederate flag and became our real-life supershero, @BreeNewsome made this fantastic short #blackhorror film, WAKE (2010) - as a student project.

The disturbing dystopian short film WHITE (2011) by @sayeedamoreno feels like it's coming the day after tomorrow. What would YOU sacrifice to save your family? Also, Merry Christmas: but it's 120 degrees.
