2019
Country

BLACK TO TECHNO follows the history of Techno music and asserts it not just as a musical gesture but as a philosophical, sonic and anthropological one: a model for the overcoming of alienation, the undoing of oppositions between the individual and the means of production. As Nkiru calls it, the film is a ‘cosmic archaeology’ which deeply explores and excavates the layers bound within this unique sound.

Biography


Nkiru is an artist and filmmaker. Pushed through an Afro-surrealist lens, her practice is grounded in the history of Black music and the aesthetics of experimental film and international art cinema. Her work draws on the Black arts movement and the rich and variegated tradition of cinemas of the Black diaspora and their distinct experimentation with the politics of form. Her work blends history, identity, politics, music, documentary and dance.(c) Picture: Paula Harrowing
