"It was very important to me to have figures made out of a substance that is so temporal—it’s so subject to change. …They’re very much like the interior of the Domino Sugar Factory, which is also still dripping, still producing molasses from its interior, still weeping this substance." —Kara Walker on her recent project for Creative Time, from the latest episode in Art21’s Exclusive series

Pumzi - dir. Wanuri Kahiu // Kenya

In a dystopian future 35 years after an ecological WWIII  has torn the world apart, East African survivors of the devastation remain locked away in contained communities, but a young woman in possession of a germinating seed struggles against the governing council to bring the plant to Earth’s ruined surface.
