FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
XX November 2021
Oakland, CA: Transmedia production company Artistic Freedom Ltd. will launch its first afrofuturist audio drama podcast, “DOMESTICATED” by director Celia C. Peters, on November 14, 2021.
DOMESTICATED is the innovative scripted podcast we all want, need, and deserve: over 16 million people in the US alone are "avid podcast fans" (podcasthosting.org) and this series feeds the hunger of the very large (and growing!) afrofuturist and sci-fi audiences. DOMESTICATED explores a mind-blowing experience in intense, small bites infused with vibrant sound; complex, multidimensional characters; and thick atmosphere. The edgy story puts the very human issues of social hierarchy, gender, race and psychology in the hands of beings who have no understanding of them whatsoever; the story is told by a woman who is obsessed with being free while navigating profound changes to humans and the planet. This groundbreaking series will stoke the imagination-flames of sci-fi lovers, afropunks, speculative fiction connoisseurs and podcast surfers worldwide.
Logline: In near-future America, Aramintha finds herself trapped in a new reality when a highly advanced species comes to Earth and domesticates humanity. Escape --- or death --- are the only options she can live with. So begins this compelling afrofuturist sci-fi story that imagines one possible way inevitable first contact with otherworldly life might unfold.
DOMESTICATED will premiere on 11.14.21 at the 12pm ET Lunch & Listen Audio Screening at the Afros & Audio Podcast Festival (https://www.afrosandaudio.com/festivalagenda2021). The same day, the series will also launch on the Simplecast.com podcast platform at https://domesticated.simplecast.com, with distribution across popular podcast platforms.
Series creator Celia C. Peters sees science fiction as “....the liberation genre...not bound by the political, sexual, racial, and gender roles of our current world. Science fiction is where creativity and imagination become reality."
