Space is the place (2017)
In the year 2060, inhabitants of a distant planet called Afrenti develop
the technology to revisit and experience the memories of their African
diasporic ancestors on Earth. AfroOankali, a citizen of Afrenti, decides to
enter a simulation to reconnect with and understand her ancestor Camille,
who lived on Earth while it was still inhabitable.

It was produced by Michael Jenkins of 8th Sense Media. The film previewed at Sheffield Doc Fest in June 2018.
