Summary
This classic of experimental underground filmmaking by Phill Niblock features rare and exclusive footage, photos, and recordings of pianist Sun Ra and the members of his Solar Arkestra. Shot in the 1960s, when the Arkestra was based in New York, the film was produced using a unique negative process and ultra-tight close-ups on the moving hands and mouths of the musicians. The result is a virtually abstract music film, mastered from a new print in all its incredibly sharp black and white glory.
