Renowned poet Nikki Giovanni’s body of work honors the experiences of Black Americans pushing the boundaries of imagination, time, and space. Directors Michèle Stephenson and Joe Brewster dismantle the biopic genre by creating an Afrofutrist, immersive experience across the universe of Giovanni’s legacy. Blending together observational footage, impressive archives, and powerful performances, Going To Mars: The Nikki Giovanni Project propels history across the galaxy, exploring important moments in time through Black liberation. Centering Black women as the solution toward a brighter future, Giovanni leads the viewer through her life on a journey to Mars. (KS)
