Man from Tomorrow, 2014 (U.S. Premiere) Note: Only Two Showtimes
Wednesday, February 12, 2014
5:00PM and 7:00PM
The Studio Museum in Harlem
144 W125th Street
New York, NY  10027

The U.S. premiere of Man from Tomorrow is presented in conjunction with the current exhibition The Shadows Took Shape at The Studio Museum in Harlem and co-presented by New Forms Festival.

Man from Tomorrow (2014) is a collaborative effort between French filmmaker Jacqueline Caux and Detroit Techno icon Jeff Mills that aims to extend the boundaries of the traditional filmic portrait through a non-narrative approach, which combines aesthetically unconventional images and his unreleased original music for the soundtrack.

Part of the film uses voice-over excerpts from conversations with Mills about the topics that inspire him when he composes music, such as his preoccupation with the future of mankind and his interest in both space and time travel. According to Caux, "These propositions may seem to us now to come from a world of fantasy; however, they will most certainly become realities accessible to mankind, and may even become necessary for the survival of humanity."

An essential figure in the sonic history of Afrofuturism, Jeff Mills presents his musical compositions in a non-DJ context in New York City for the first time since 2001. Following the screening, the filmmaker and Mills will talk about the project, and will discuss his trajectory from co-founding the politically motivated music collective Underground Resistance to his current art practice which includes video installations, multimedia sculpture and performance.

This program is organized by Andrew Rebatta, independent curator.


The Shadows Took Shape is a dynamic interdisciplinary exhibition exploring contemporary art through the lens of Afrofuturist aesthetics.

With roots in the avant-garde musical stylings of sonic innovator Sun Ra (born Herman Poole Blount, 19141993), Afrofuturism has been used by artists, writers and theorists as a way to prophesize the future, redefine the present and reconceptualize the past. The exhibition features more than sixty works of art, including ten new commissions, charting the evolution of Afrofuturist tendencies by an international selection of established and emerging practitioners, spanning not only personal themes of identity and self-determination in the African-American community, but also persistent concerns of techno-culture, geographies, utopias and dystopias, as well as universal preoccupations with time and space.

Organized by Naima J. Keith, Assistant Curator at The Studio Museum in Harlem and Zoe Whitley, Curator of Contemporary British Art at Tate Britain.
