The Last Angel of History is one of the most influential video-essays of the 1990s, influencing filmmakers and many others. The film is an engaging and searing examination of the hitherto unexplored relationships between Pan-African culture, science fiction, intergalactic travel, and rapidly progressing computer technology.

The screening will be followed by an informal discussion and drinks.
