Adam Kahan (Project Director: August 2020 to present)
Sun Ra from Saturn

Development of a sixty-minute documentary film examining the life and work of jazz musician and forerunner of Afrofuturism Sun Ra (1914–93).

A documentary film about the influential pianist and bandleader Sun Ra (né Herman Poole Blount, 1914-1993). The sophistication and range of Ra’s music, his charismatic personality, his intellectual explorations and writings, and his continuing impact on jazz and related genres, make Ra a germinal figure of the 20th century.
