Nine Muses

And it's just as enigmatic as the festival circuit trailer but is full of more footage than the previous.

The Nine Muses, the latest offering from award-winning Ghanaian-born Brit director, John Akomfrah's, which 

made its stateside debut at this year's Sundance Film Festival, 

got a 1 week theatrical run last month, here in New York City at the theaters at the Museum Of Modern Art.

The experimental film is an allegorical fable divided into overlapping musical chapters,and retells the history of mass migration to post-war Britain through the suggestive lens of Homer's epic poem, The Odyssey.

An early 2012 release is planned for the UK.

A little background on Akomfrah for those unaware... originally from Accra, Ghana, Akomfrah moved to the UK as a child. He studied art and sociology in college. At 28, he made his seminal film, Handsworth (1986), about racial and civil strife of 1980s Britain, and has since made 16 other films, including Seven Songs for Malcolm X (1993), Martin Luther King: Days of Hope (1997) and The Wonderful World of Louis Armstrong (1999).

In 1982, he co-founded the Black Audio Film Collective, with the objectives of addressing issues of Black British identity.

MsWOO saw the film when it debuted at the London Film Festival in the fall of 2010, and she discussed and reviewed it on the old S&A site HERE.
