Dir: John Carpenter, USA 1984
As part of The Dead Shrines Project (which sees Birmingham artists Hipkiss and Graney build and erect a large sculpture in Stirchley Park) we’re screening the John Carpenter classic, Starman. Jeff Bridges is an alien visitor to Earth who is knocked off course and must take an interstate road trip to rendezvous with a mothership from his home planet. To complete this journey he assumes the physical form of the dead husband of a Wisconsin widow (Karen Allen) who responds first with fear, then sympathy, and finally love.
Preceded by UFO Encounters – a short archive film about alien sightings in the Midlands.
This event is a part of Birmingham On Film II: Waterway to Have a Good Time. For the full programme see flatpackfestival.org.uk
