To Our Future Ancestors

Written and directed by Bogdan Anifrani and Ian Keteku

Produced by Jelena Popović

To Our Future Ancestors is the tale of Adowa, a nondescript African woman who has taken various forms throughout millennia: Eve, Rosa Parks, Winnie Mandela, Sandra Bland, Dr. Mae Jemison. As we follow this abstract yet engaging character, the film jumps timelines to tell a story of African existence, resistance, and excellence. Adowa searches through timelines in the present and past for an object which will show her the future. She eventually realizes she is the omen she’s been looking for.
