Ode To Octavia, Pt. 12: (Sparkles) ... Recollections Of The Wraith, with Shabazz Palaces

Shot by members of The Black Constellation, this marvelous, visionary short film (Sparkles) ... Recollections Of The Wraith uses two tracks from Shabazz Palaces to offset the wondrous visionary spectacle. The short film is the 12th part in the group's homage to award-winning science fiction writer Octavia E. Butler, who died in 2006.

The group used the enthralling, deeply naturalistic locations of Washington state's Methow Valley, the Cascade foothills, and the town of Carnation (which has the Tolt-MacDonald Park and Campground). Watch it below.
