Steampunk vs. Steamfunk

The 11th annual Langston Hughes African American Film Festival is underway at the Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute in Seattle. What began as a weekend series 11 years ago is now a nine-day festival with everything from short to long films and documentaries. And new this year is the addition of food trucks for weekend festival events. Also this year the festival features three local filmmakers. One of them joins me in the studio today. Briaan Barron created and directed a mixed-media documentary short, “Steamfunk & Rococoa: A Black Victorian Fantasy”. The short explores a little-known genre called Steampunk.

KBCS Music + Ideas Host Sonya Green discusses how people of color are creatively telling their stories through the Steampunk genre with Briaan Barron.
