Afronauts update

We blogged in February about a book featuring fictional photos of a sci-fi fantasy centered around a true but forgotten Zambian space program in the 1960s:  “Cristina De Middel‘s Afronauts: An African space fantasy” has been nominated and is on the short list for the Deutsche Borse Photography Prize 2013.” CNN later picked up the story.

It has since had much more press. Frances Bodomo made it into a film following a successful Kickstarter campaign for post production, support from an Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Film Grant, and a January Sundance Festival premier.

See teaser preview here.
