Afrofuturist Cinema: THE UNITED STATES OF HOODOO

Saturday, April 15, 2017

9:30 PM Detroit Film Theatre

(Germany/2012 directed by Oliver Hardt, with original music by Arto Lindsay and Rabotnik)

The United States of Hoodoo focuses on the road trip of author Darius James as he crosses the continent. From New York to New Orleans, James slowly discovers the deep spiritual roots behind African-American creative practice. Both a personal journey and a cultural voyage, this film paints a multifaceted picture of contemporary African-American art and culture that draws upon everything from the delta blues of Robert Johnson through to the art of Nick Cave, against the background the spiritual traditions of Africa and its diaspora. (100 min.)
