April 3 - 15: Space is the Place: Afrofuturism on Film at BAM. What does a film festival have to do with music? Everything! One way to look at cutting edge African-American musical culture is as a quest to understand how the society that they helped build is so alienated against them. Maybe, like Sun Ra (Space is the Place 4/9), they’re from outer space. Maybe Hip Hop (Beat This!: A Hip Hop History 4/3) is a way to carve out an alternate future. Maybe you will dig The Brother From Another Planet, Afronauts, the Robots of Brixton, and especially Ornette: Made in America (4/11).
