“Space is the Place” Screening at the Byrd Theatre

Wednesday, May 22

Called the Putney Swope of jazz movies by The New York Times, this 1974 film by John Coney featuring legendary Afro-futurist jazz composer and musician Sun Ra, was based in part on his lectures at the University of California Berkeley dealing with music as a force for changing people’s consciousness. Like Ra’s interstellar music, it’s weird and moving, while providing a window into the art of a highly inspired creative force. 7:15 to 9:15 p.m.
