Here at The 7th Matrix, we are huge proponents of speculative fiction told from the perspectives of marginalized voices.
Narratives from diverse storytellers often possess a richness, depth, and complexity that make stories extremely compelling and dynamic.
The sci-fi short The 6th World is a prime example.
Written and co-produced by Nanobah Becker, The 6th World is part of FUTURESTATES, an initiative of the Independent Television Service (ITVS) that produces narrative short films depicting futures shaped by current social issues.
The night before her mission launches, Commander Redhouse has a disturbing premonition that proves fateful when the mission suffers a critical systems failure en route to the red planet.
Ultimately, Redhouse must rely on her training as well as the traditions of her people to ensure the survival of the mission.
