On Saturday, February 23, ATA Gallery’s OTHER CINEMA celebrates Black History Month with a focus on African-American musical contributions, notably those associated with Afro-Futurism.

The West Coast premiere of Soda_Jerk’s complete Astro Black suite is a half-hr. collage-narrative of wildly juxtaposed scenes, from music hall through electronica to UFOs.

PLUS Cauleen Smith’s masterful choreography of a Chicago marching band’s flash-mob street performance of a Sun Ra composition.

ALSO: three rare Sun Ra segments expressing his way-out sci-fi cosmology, righteous clips of Muhammad Ali and a 10-year-old Michael Jackson, and an irresistibly funky chunk from that classic 16mm time-capsule Black Music in America—Billie Holiday, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Nina Simone, B.B. King, et. al.
