Lassamie Prasimay - 11th Apr 2018

Junaid Faiz's pixel animation for the West Country dream-pop outfit Wasuremono homages Street Fighter-era video games - and the players who have been 'left behind', repeatedly stuck on the same level. 

Inspired by the Afro-Futurist movement, this video simultaneously celebrates other communities whose futures were changed forever from the impact of colonialism, and the superheroes waiting to be unleashed from those stories.
