Space Is The Place (1974) - directed By Sun Ra & John Coney
Sun Ra and his Solar Myth Arkestra return to Earth after several years in space. Ra proclaims himself to be “the alter-destiny” and sets out to enact his plan to use music as salvation for the black community—even battling with the devil himself to save black people from oppression.
Drexciya (2010)- directed by Akosua Adoma Owusu
A portrait of an abandoned public swimming facility located in Accra, Ghana set on the Riviera. The Riviera at one time was an upscale development, consisting of luxury high-rises and five star hotels. Since the 1970s, the Riviera has fallen into a disheveled state.
This short documentary was inspired by afro-futurist myths propagated by the underground Detroit-based band Drexciya. They suggest that Drexciya is a mythical underwater subcontinent populated by the unborn children of African women thrown overboard during the Trans-Atlantic slave trade. These children have adapted and evolved to breathe underwater.
