With Sun Ra

This rare, revealing documentary presents jazz legend and mystic Sun Ra as both philosopher and inspired leader of his most famous band, the Intergalactic Arkestra. Testimonials from colleagues are intercut with concert footage in Baltimore and Philadelphia, as well as sessions with the Ra himself, filmed in the Egyptian room of a museum, in which he looks intently into the camera as he expands on his Afrocentrist worldview.
