ITVS and the Tribeca Film Institute will be hosting a FREE screening of FUTURESTATES Season 3 on Saturday, April 21 at 2PM in New York City.

What will be of America in 5, 25, or even 50 years from today? This series of independent mini-features, short narrative films created by established filmmakers and emerging talents, explores possible future scenarios through the lens of today’s global realities. Immerse yourself in the visions of these independent filmmakers as they inhabit a future of their own imagining. The screening will take place on Saturday, April 21 at 2PM at the Tribeca Cinemas (54 Varick Street) in New York City, followed by a Q&A with many of the FUTURESTATES filmmakers. To attend, please RSVP to rsvp@itvs.org

As Tambay posted earlier this month, Tina Mabry (Mississippi Damned) is one Season 3's filmmakers, and her piece is called Crossover.

Its synopsis reads:

In a future where schools are segregated by economic status, a struggling mother must decide whether to sell her own organs to give her children a better education.

Watch the intriguing trailer for it below:
