I'm doing The Carlton all over the visual stimulation this teaser trailer for the short film Afronauts, written and directed by Ghanaian filmmaker Frances Bodomo. With almost a dozen films under her belt and multiple Sundance appearances, Bodomo takes her audience on a trip back in time as it "tells an alternative history of the 1960s Space Race" while simultaneously pitting them in a present and future where technology gives us the opportunity to learn true stories of African contribution in science and space exploration.
After a successful Kickstarter campaign and some foundation funding, Afronauts made its world premiere at Sundance 2014. Until it makes its landing on a festival near you, enjoy!
