Space is the Place by John Coney
Avant-jazz visionary Sun Ra’s Afrofuturist vision comes to the screen in this film adaptation of his concept album. It’s a wild, kaleidoscopic whirl of science fiction, incisive social critique, playful pseudo-blaxploitation stylistics, and electrifying concert sequences, as Sun Ra and his Arkestra spearhead an intergalactic mission to relocate the Black community to their utopian space colony.
85 minutes, 1974
