Inspired by the recent release of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (2022), Imo and James decide to explore Black representation in the science-fiction/super-hero fantasy genre (specifically, sci-fi movies that centre a Black protagonists/characters). The first curated film of the season is Project Power (2020), starring Jamie Foxx, Dominique Fishback and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman. 
Picking up on this theme, the critics discuss how Joost and Schulman’s sci-fi thriller deal with the US healthcare system, Hurricane Katrina, and the Tuskegee Experiment all within a compact feature film that also has equal measures of style, bombast and heart. 
Is the movie an unappreciated power-punch or just dealing in stereotypes?
