The Magic Sun

2005 Rated NR 1hr

Shot in black and white in the mid-1960s and recently remastered, this cutting-edge film features the exceptional work of photographer and director Phill Niblock in collaboration with jazz pianist Sun Ra and his Solar Arkestra. Using a unique negative technique and extreme close-ups of the band members' hands and mouths, Niblock crafted a cinematic experience that's a feast for the eyes and ears. Extras include a gallery of Sun Ra photos.
