David Hammons’ career covers life in LA during a turbulent 1960s up to his prominence within the global art world today by analyzing African American society and its representation within US life. Featuring interviews with eminent artists, curators and critics -- a wealth of archival footage and an evocative soundscape by Ramachandra Borcar that includes Marshall Allen, Idris Ackamoor and Shabaka Hutchings, and a reading by The Last Poets member and hip-hop forefather Umar Bin Hassan. The Melt Goes on Forever is a revelatory journey through six decades of art and culture.
