Black Audio Film Collective’s The Last Angel of History is one of the most influential video-essays of the 1990s, influencing filmmakers and many others. The film is an engaging and searing examination of the hitherto unexplored relationships between Pan-African culture, science fiction, intergalactic travel, and rapidly progressing computer technology.
The film is set 200 years into the future where a data thief is stealing fragments of Human culture. Through interviews with Derrick May and Goldie and based around George Clinton’s Mothership Connection, the film offers a history of Black music – from Robert Johnson to Detroit Techno – as a way of exploring the future.
This free event will be complemented by a new presentation by Nottingham Castle Open Solo Exhibition winner Frank Abbott and the pizza making competition of year, the Pizza Off! Liam Aitken vs Tristan ‘the Titan’ Hessing – reportedly the best Pizza chef Nottingham has ever seen.
Admission: FREE! Please be aware that places are limited. To secure a place please call 0115 924 8630.
