SPACE IS THE PLACE at Amherst Cinema – Sound and Vision

August 30 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
28 Amity Street
Amherst,
  • This event has passed.

Science fiction, blaxploitation, cosmic free-jazz and radical race politics combine when Sun Ra returns to earth in his music-powered space ship to battle for the future of the black race and offer an ‘alter-destiny’ to those who would join him.

Intentionally created as an homage to the low-budget science fiction films of the 50’s and 60’s, SPACE IS THE PLACE became a visual embodiment of Sun Ra’s Afro-Egyptian myth of salvation in outer space.

The special effects, outrageous plot line and apocalyptic message harmonize with the otherworldly score and a climactic live performance by one of the most innovative and profound groups in jazz history.
