Great shout out from Tambay A Obenson (Shadow and Act section of Indiewire)

A few quotes from the article:

It should be clear by now that we’re high on Frances Bodomo’s upcoming Afronauts, a film on the 1964 Zambian Space Program.

The film’s starring cast of actors includes Diandra Forrest, Yolonda Ross and Hoji Fortuna.

It’s currently in post-production, and should debut on the film festival circuit sometime in the next 12 months, and we’ll certainly be watching for it.
