Website We Are Parable
Foresight is a compilation of short films set in the UK that imagine the future for Black and Brown characters. Written, directed, and produced by culturally diverse filmmakers who call the UK home. Foresight is an urgent anthology that explores alternate realities through the lens of five Black British Directors. This time capsule collection contributes to a perspective and point of view continually missing from our screens… a future where people of colour exist!
Missed the premiere of Foresight in July? Now’s your chance to catch it as part of WHO WE ARE, the nationwide celebration of Black Cinema by We Are Parable.
