Filmmaker Frances Bodomo won FOUR GRANTS, count em up FOUR at Sundance yesterday, totaling what looks like $25,000  to pull together a full length production of her short film Afronauts which premiered in  in the short film competition.  The sponsoring companies and organizations  were Kodak, Technicolor, the 2014 Women in Film/Calm Down Productions and Entertainment Partners.  Afronauts is a 13 minute black and white film that:

Afronauts tells the alternative history of the 1960s Space Race. It’s the night of July 16th, 1969 and, as America prepares to send Apollo 11 to the moon, a group of exiles in the Zambian desert are rushing to launch their rocket first. There’s only one problem: their spacegirl, Matha, is five months pregnant. Afronauts follows characters that have not been able to find a home on earth and are therefore attracted to the promise of the space race.
