The Last Angel of History

“The Last Angel of History” is 1995 experimental documentary directed by John Akomfrah, steeped in the connections between science and black culture. The film plays with time, space, and history in creating an unpredictable shorthand of AfroFuturism. It reminds me a lot of Chris Marker’s work, especially “Sans Soleil” with the carefully delivered narration, except Akomfrah also fuses interviews with everyone from George Clinton to techno DJ Derrick May and astronaut Bernard Harris into the narrative.
