EARTH MOTHER, SKY FATHER
Earth Mother, Sky Father is a live action music film that takes place in the year 2030. The Congo no longer ships unrefined rare earth minerals out to sea, but keeps its wealth onshore and in the ground. The processes and infrastructure of mining have been revalued and ritualized as an important aspect of local culture. This is Afrika’s future through dance - a ceremony for the God of Rare Earth.
The music film features a performance from acclaimed street dancer Storyboard P who plays the part of Woot, an Excavation Programmer, and sonic sounds with a dissonant electro haze by the infamous duo Shabazz Palaces, Sub Pop Records.
