The Brother from Another Planet, starring Joe Morton as an extraterrestrial who has escaped to earth and is hiding in New York City. Picked up as homeless, he is deposited in Harlem. The sweet-natured and honest Brother looks like any other black man, except that he is mute and - although other characters in the film never see them - his feet each have three large toes. The Brother has telekinetic powers but, unable to speak, he struggles to express himself and adjust to his new surroundings, including a stint in the Job Corps at a video arcade in Manhattan.
Following the film will be a discussion on the films aesthetics, place in history and the emotions evoked by the film.
i love you
