Space is the Place is one of the most important expressions of Afrofuturism to ever grace the silver screen. The film follows musician Sun Ra, Chicago resident and one of the fathers of Afrofuturism, as he attempts to resettle African Americans on a different planet, using music as the mode of transportation. Come for Sun Ra's unique acting and writing, and stay for the incredible soundtrack by musical legends Arkestra.

runtime: 85m format: DCP
