Join Arthur Jafa and Helen Molesworth in conversation on the occasion of Arthur Jafa: Love Is The Message, The Message Is Death, the West Coast premiere of the artist, director, and award-winning cinematographer’s new video. Set to Kanye West’s gospel-inspired hip-hop track “Ultralight Beam,” the video traces African-American identity through a vast spectrum of contemporary imagery. Jafa and Molesworth discuss the expansive and complex terrain of Black representation and Jafa’s desire to create a cinema that “replicates the power, beauty, and alienation of Black Music.”
