Kordae Jatafa Henry: Earth Mother Sky Father Trailer01:05

'Earth Mother Sky Father' is a live-action music video by SCI-Arc Fiction & Entertainment student Kordae Jatafa Henry that takes place in the year 2030 when the Congo is no longer shipping unrefined rare earth minerals out to sea but is keeping 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 playing the part of Woot, an Excavation Programmer and is supported by the sonic sounds and dissonant electro haze of the infamous duo Shabazz Palaces from Sub Pop Records.
