I need someone to write a story based on black mermaids and their help in saving black captives who attempted suicide by jumping overboard during the slave trade. I need this book written. I need it to have some Yoruba feels to it. I need it. and then I need a film based on it.

I’m two years late but why is this story concept sitting in my google docs right now under “future books to write” after a josephine baker book and a novel about black, artsy folks? 
I gotchu you boo, I got you.

THE FUTURE WEIRD: (non-)resident aliens

On Wednesday 21st May 2014, The Future Weird returns with (NON-)RESIDENT ALIENS, an evening of short films about migration, borders, gentrification and contested space. Remembering so-called “black sites”– where government projects are conducted outside of a country’s territory – and isolated immigrant detention centers, we invite you to consider the kind of landscapes we protect, the people we eliminate, and the shocking logic of labour without bodies.

NON-RESIDENT ALIENS presents clips from the archive, shorts by Alex Rivera & Chiwetel Ejiofor, photography by Richard Mosse & Ingrid Pollard and a dystopic coming-of-age Brazilian TV drama set in a starkly unequal future. 

Join us on Wednesday 21st May @8PM, at Spectacle Theater for the fifth edition of The Future Weird
