About The Last Angel of History (1996)
The Last Angel of History is a 45-minute film that explores the relationships between science fiction, The Black Aesthetic, computer technology, and forced displacement. Described as “one of the most influential video essays of the 1990s,” John Akomfrah and Edward George produced this work as members of the Black Audio Film Collective (1982-1998).
This 3+1 program is organized in partnership with the Octavia E. Butler: Celebrating Letters, Life, and Legacy Conference and the Spelman College Department of English.
