Ytasha Womack, author of Afrofuturism: The World of Black Sci-Fi and Fantasy Culture, is currently Kickstarting for a film a new film project. Bar Star City follows a group of regulars at a Southside Chicago bar who "appear ordinary but are quite extraordinary." Womack will write and direct the film.

Here's how she describes it.

A charmed longtime bar owner discovers that his understated Southside Chicago watering hole is the home for galactic phenomena.

A goddess, a war veteran and the captain of a spaceship meet in a bar...

We've all went to bars and met unique, quirky personalities. But what happens when seemingly ordinary people are quite extraordinary? This film follows several not so ordinary regulars of a bar that's become a home for the galactic and well-traveled.
