“While I was watching Black star: ’Rebirth is Necessary’ I got taken away again by the sharp and quick shots enforced by the use of sound. I was entering a universe I wanted to see and know more of. That’s what I admire so much about Nkiru’s work: she really engages me as a viewer. Her images activate my curiosity and make me want to enlarge my perspective.
The same goes for the documentary ‘Black to Techno’. ‘Black to Techno’ is a documentary that shows us how Techno is originated from Detroit’s Black community.”
It shows the close relation between Techno music and the industrial nature of Detroit (the sound and the soul of machines). The motive and the storyline of the documentary in combination with the sound and images, are truly breathtaking.
If you want to know more about Jenn Nkiru’s work you can check out her website. I also enjoyed the film AS TOLD TO G/D THYSELF that she worked on with The Ummah Chroma collective or The Carters Apeshit video wherefore she was the 2nd unit director.”
