Sun Ra: Space is the Place 1974

Afrofuturism, the aesthetic used by Kapwani Kiwanga in her work, critiques the obstacles that people of colour face by retelling and revising stories of science fiction, fantasy and magic realism. As such, The Power Plant is pleased to present Sun Ras seminal afrofuturist film Space is the Place 1974. In the film, Sun Ra and his band The Arkestra find themselves on a new mysterious planet and then embark on a journey that involves time travel, musical performance and clashes with their adversary The Overseer. The film is in part based on Sun Ras lectures at the University of California, Berkley and is an integral piece of the Blaxploitation canon.
