Detroit, MI 48202

Derica Shields of the Future Weird (Brooklyn) will program an evening of short films for a Video-Farm evening, projected outdoors on the big screen at MUFI. Derica will lead a discussion after the screening to reflect on contested and protected space, and question the ways to imagine worlds beyond production and consumption.

Derica Shields is one of the founders of the Brooklyn based collective the Future Weird, whose programming is dedicated to sci-fi/experimental/weird film by black, African, and Third World directors.

For Trans-Farm, Derica will create a program of retro-futurist short films that specifically relate to agricultural settings and sci-fi farm life. Derica will give an introduction and lead a discussion of the films before and after the screening.
