“afronaut(a): is a collage of time, travel. the space from the rites to the popular. travels through culture and the moving image. it’s how I navigate through inspiration, identity and creation...” ABW

TODAY!!!!!!! @ Healcrest Urban Farm

This evening we watch, 


In this poetic and atmospheric horror fable, set in a village in war-torn medieval Japan, a malevolent spirit has been ripping out the throats of itinerant samurai. When a military hero is sent to dispatch the unseen force, he finds that he must struggle with his own personal demons as well. From Kaneto Shindo, director of the terror classic Onibaba, Kuroneko (Black Cat) is a spectacularly eerie twilight tale with a shocking feminist angle, evoked through ghostly special effects and exquisite cinematography.

With guests,

Anna Slowdanger Thompson and Taylor Knight!
