Jazz Film Fest: The Man Who Fell to Earth

Fri, June 23 / 9 pm
Sat, June 24 / 3 pm
Sun, June 25 / 3 pm
Directed by Nicolas Roeg
1976, UK, 139 min

David Bowie leaped to unforgettable screen stardom in his debut film, this Nicolas Roeg adaptation of Walter Tevis’ 1963 sci-fi tale of betrayal and hopelessness. Roeg’s exquisite visual sense and the inspired casting has made this a modern classic of sci-fi with a core much more attuned to the human than the technological, replete with elements of Burroughs, classic film and mythology. Bowie plays Thomas Jerome Newton, an alien emissary sent from the planet Anthea in a desperate effort to save both his own dying planet and to prevent us from destroying our own. -Mark Zimmer, Digitally Obsesessed
