WALKABOUT
1971, Janus Films, 100 min, Dir: Nicolas Roeg

In Nicolas Roeg’s dreamy, hypnotically primal tone poem, an adolescent sister and brother flee into the Australian bush after their father has a deadly nervous breakdown. Once distant from civilization, the siblings meet an aboriginal youth (David Gulpilil) on his “walkabout,” the ritual separation from home and family as a test of survival and resourcefulness.


35 mm!
4K DCP!

THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH
1976, Rialto Pictures, 139 min, UK, Dir: Nicolas Roeg

This stylish cult favorite stars rocker David Bowie (in his feature debut) as the exotic and mysterious Thomas Jerome Newton - an extraterrestrial hoping to save his drought-ravaged planet. With his advanced technology, Newton easily amasses wealth and power, but he has considerably more trouble dealing with human desires and fears. Enigmatic and beautiful, this is one of the most distinctive sci-fi films of the 1970s. Costarring Rip Torn, Candy Clark and Buck Henry.
