Directed by British Director Jenn Nkiru, BLACK TO TECHNO shot in Detroit by cinematographer Bradford Young explores the origins and circumstances that created techno in Detroit – everything from the city’s auto history to the influence of the Motown artists. BLACK TO TECHNO is a visual collage of intersecting narratives, conceptual frameworks, archival references, and original imagery, asserting techno not just as a musical gesture but as a philosophical, sonic, and anthropological one.
