Starfish Accelerator incubated “Laying Flowers.:.Setting Fires”, a short film by poet Amir Sulaiman and produced in collaboration with Michael Fernandez (Black Is King and The Burial of Kojo), is a poem, a eulogy, a war cry, a victory dance, and a call to action that emerged in response to the cycle of state violence against Black bodies.
