Wanuri Kahiu’s Pumzi is an Afrofuturist movie, addressing the consequences of climate change and subsequent wars. Pumzi disturbs to dream, turning memory into the elixier of future. This volume is dedicated to learning from Pumzi and its protagonist Asha. Solidarity and resistance in the midst of a dystopic technodictatorship plan(t) new futureS, across species and time. This volume’s contributions delve into this topic pillared on concepts such as futureS, hero, dystopia, Afrofuturism, environment and solidarity. In doing so, the volume contributes to contouring the emergent field Postcolonial Posthuman Studies.
