Sun Ra Arkestra: Points on a Space Age
Shedding light on the curious history of the Sun Ra Arkestra, an experimental big band launched in the 1950s by musician-philosopher Sun Ra, this documentary charts the group's influence and examines their current work under leader Marshall Allen. Members of the Arkestra embraced everything about Ra's philosophy, a belief system that involved the concept of "afrofuturism" and preparing human beings for the coming space age.
