"pepsi, cola, water?" is a short experimental documentary about Sun Ra's legendary visit to Egypt in 1971.Jazz pioneer and philosopher Sun Ra had a deep fascination with outer space and ancient Egypt. Computer animation, archival footage, and music from Sun Ra are interwoven to create a recreation/celebration of his legendary visit to Egypt in 1971. The result is a film as far out as Sun Ra himself.
