Here's a sneak peek at an upcoming documentary titled Brave New Souls: Black Sci-Fi & Fantasy Writers of the 21st Century, which, as producer/director Brandon M. Easton states, 
explores the thoughts, goals and inspirations of a new generation of Black creators in graphic novels, television, cinema, literature and digital media. 


It's certainly no secret that we here at S&A are champions of sci-fi - especially when it comes from, and/or tells stories about people of African descent. All those rom-coms are great, but there are several other genres of cinema that we just aren't really participating in as fully - certainly not the way we are, when you consider just how robust both our literary work and music libraries are.

Producer/director Brandon M. Easton says further that, with the film, he wants to shine a much-needed light on new Black writers whose contributions and awareness in the marketplace haven't been truly recognized, thanks, in part, to the myriad of entertainment options available to us in this century. 

Brandon (
a professional writer, screenwriter, and educator based in LA., with over fifteen years of experience) also wants to provide a window into the creative processes of these black artists, and expose both aspiring writers and potential fans to incredibly imaginative, witty and sophisticated storytelling that challenge our perceptions of what is possible. 

Expect the completed film to debut later this year.

In the meantime, here's a rough sneak:
