The pilot episode of Canadian animation company Steambot’s dystopian series Urbance has been a labor of love, but it’s finally here for all to see. The show is built around Kenzell and Lesya, two POC youth falling in love amidst their city being split in half by gender.
The show went into production in January 2015 after a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign in 2014, raising $229,000 Canadian dollars off of a $189,000 CAD asking price. An animated sci-fi show centering around people of color overthrowing an oppressive government that’s trying to regulate our bodies? Color us interested.
