MARVELOUS MOVIE MONDAYS!!
Guest curator: CHRISTOPHER HARRIS
The title for the series of films I’ve selected for the month of December is DOWN TO EARTH: EXTRATERRISTRIALS AND HEAVENLY BODIES.
This Monday’s selection is “Solar Flare Arkestral Marching Band #1” (2010/video/11min) by Cauleen Smith. In another video work inspired by the music and philosophy of Sun Ra, Smith organized and documented this on-site flashmob performance of Ra’s anthem “Space is the Place” by the Rich South High School Marching Band at Chinatown Square in Chicago. The heavenly bodies move through public space leaving the music of the spheres in their wake.
