Musician and filmmaker Phill Niblock turns his lens on the legendary avant-garde jazz artist Sun Ra in this experimental short subject. Shot using a high-contrast negative film process and composed in a series of extreme close-ups of the hands and mouths of Sun Ra and his Solar Arkestra, Sun Ra: The Magic Sun is an impressionistic look at these influential jazz artists, with the images providing a counterpoint to the unique energy of Ra's music.
