Black Oakland Celebrates the 30-year anniversary of the release of the Afrifuturist classic film starring the legendary musician composer and bandleader Sun Ra. This is a special anniversary showing at D’wayne Wiggins’ brand new Mindseed recording studio and compound located in deep East Oakland.
“Space is the Place” was directed by John Coney, written by Sun Ra and Joshua Smith. It was filmed on location in Oakland with a cast consisting of Sun Ra’s Arkestra and released for viewing in November of 1974.
This family friendly film showing will be followed by a birthday celebration for longtime Jazz radio broadcaster Greg Bridges (KJAZ, KPFA, KCSM) until midnight.
