One of the standout science fiction films at this year's Sundance Festival is Wanuri Kahiu's short Pumzi, set in Kenya of the future, after water wars have decimated humanity. With its African futurist look, this could be another District 9.
Pumzi was produced by Simon Hansen, who also produced the short film Alive in Joburg that became feature District 9. Kahiu told Wired that the movie was influenced by classic 1950s films and the African "tradition of tapestries and functional art." You can see the trailer for the movie here:
The movie is about a scientist who discovers a seed that is germinating, and wants to investigate the Earth's surface to see if other plant life is growing again.
