SPACE IS THE PLACE
USA 1974 | 81 Min

Director: John Coney
With: Sun Ra, Raymond Johnson, Christopher Brooks

Trailer: http://bit.ly/2m7U2BB

California in the 1970s. Music prophet Sun Ra dreams of a better future for the oppressed black population of the USA. Following several years travelling through space and time, he returns to Earth on a mission of redemption to save the black community – not with inflammatory political speeches but by the simple power of music, the only true intergalactic medium. His plan is for a group of chosen individuals to take to a spaceship and leave the Earth, doomed to imminent destruction in a frenzy of racism and repression. Will Ra and his illustrious entourage succeed in leaving Earth in time and founding a new civilisation of cosmic liberation?

"Though the psychedelic aesthetic that runs through Space Is the Place inevitably comes across as a desire to turn away from the horror of reality, this perceived flight from reality also conceals a call to action. (...) Space Is the Place may be too esoteric to be a real manifesto, but where would beauty be if there weren't still a place for imagination and the magic of music to find complete expression.
(Michael Kienzl, critic.de)
