Written by Annetta Laufer and produced by Shobu Kapoor and Anya Ryzhenkova, AfroPunk Girl is an upcoming short film that imagines a post apocalyptic London that everyone is trying to flee from. Actress Danielle Vitalis plays the main character, Lil.
AFRO PUNK GIRL is a dystopian sci-fi drama set in a near future Britain, where Christmases are hot, nights are filled with violent muggings and the government is replaced by a military leadership enforcing the “Happiness Agenda”.
Lil, an afro punk rocker on her way north to the New World in search of food and her lost family. She meets Mr Dandy, an alcoholic rebel with an electronic voice box, who offers access to food in exchange for a lift on her rickshaw.
Lil reluctantly agrees as she has run out of food. A loner at heart, she finds herself drawn to Mr Dandy’s effervescent nature, and they form a bond. When they get caught stealing food from a government fish farm, Lil must choose between saving herself or rescuing her new friend and jeopardizing her trip to the New World.
