Attend The Future Weird: Supra-Planetary Sovereigns , 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM on Tue, Nov 26 2013 @ Spectacle Theater , New York, New York, United States This November, the Future Weird returns loaded with the retro tropes of science fiction to pay tribute to space-age prophets, musicians and messiahs. The revival begins with John Akomfrah’s The Last Angel of History, in which Black sci-fi becomes a futuristic Pan-African venture. In Akomfrah’s telling, early techno-centric experiments give way to messianic characters who swap dominating narratives of science and progress for cosmic philosophies. Interviews and testimonies of magnetic creative leaders who promise transcendence for their followers, and achieve intergalactic travel through prayer as well as funk, will be brought together. Photos, tape-recorded testimonies, and home videos from South African church services will collide with Akomfrah’s all-star cast of American musicians, charismatic space captains and Star Trek heroines to consider belief, art, truth telling, and forms of authority. Admission costs $5.
