On My Radar: Deluge

In the same way that I’m intrigued by stories and mythology about African people flying, our connection to water is a mystery that resonates with me.

From Nijla Mu’min (I linked to her poem in Web Finds, here):
This film, which centers on Tiana, a 14-year-old girl, who after witnessing the mass drowning of her friends is introduced to an aquatic underworld in the wake of the tragedy. This film is a mixture of coming-of-age drama, magical realism, and realism and will be shot in and around New Orleans.

The film is currently in pre-production and raising funds on IndieGoGo.
