David Bowie had his first starring role in this metaphysical sci-fi classic. On a mission to save his species, an extraterrestrial disguises himself as a human and amasses a fortune, only to fall into alienation and despair—a scenario well-matched to Bowie’s in the mid-‘70s.
These screenings will be introduced by BMFI Director of Programs and Education Jacob Mazer.
