Sun Ra: A Joyful Noise – FREE OUTDOOR SCREENING!

Date/Time

Sep 27, 2019
07:00 PM until 08:00 PM

Description

The quintessential document of the interplanetary jazz band leader Sun Ra, Robert Mugge’s Sun Ra: A Joyful Noise captures Ra and his Arkestra after they had relocated to Philadelphia. Portions of the film were shot on the roof of International House as well as at the Penn Museum and other locations in Philadelphia. The live performances capture the group at its peak while interviews with Ra and the band members show their commitment to a unique vision based on discipline and afro-futurist philosophy woven into the music. Prior to the FREE OUTDOOR SCREENING, join us at 5:30pm for a SUNSET PRE-PARTY celebrating the Afrofuturist legacy of Sun Ra with DJ Junior and food and beer available for purchase from Brotherly Grub food truck, Pound Cake Heaven, and Dock Street Brewery. Followed by a pre-screening conversation with filmmaker Robert Mugge and DJ/producer/music journalist John Morrison, presented by cinéSPEAK.
