In Sayles’ witty urban spin on the runaway slave narrative, a mute extraterrestrial (Joe Morton, in a remarkably expressive performance) crash-lands in Harlem after a spaceship accident and finds himself on the run from two mysterious white hunters. Stylishly shot by Spike Lee collaborator Ernest Dickerson, The Brother From Another Planet offers a thought-provoking spin on the use of the black image in science fiction.

Screening with Wanuri Kahiu's Pumzi (2009) at 7pm only.
