Space is the Place - John Coney Coney

20 October at Eye Filmmuseum
A tribute to 50's and 60's science fiction films, presented in unadulterated Blaxploitation style. Musician Sun Ra, the spiritual father of Afrofuturism and cosmic seer, plays himself in this psychedelic music film.

On 20th of October Tessa Boerman will deliver a film lecture (in Dutch). In a mind-expanding bird's eye view of literature, cinema and visual art, Tessa Boerman sketches the analogy between historical robot fantasies and that of the black body and slavery. And she shows how descriptions of extraterrestrial life in science fiction look suspiciously like the black experience in earthly reality. Tessa Boerman is a documentary maker and film programmer for IFFR.
