An alien, living on Earth against their will, learns what it means to be human…
It’s hard to imagine three more different approaches to the same story than The Man Who Fell To Earth (Nicolas Roeg’s 1970s sci-fi classic starring David Bowie), E.T The Extra Terrestrial (Steven Spielberg’s timeless children’s story, currently celebrating its 40th anniversary), and Under the Skin (directed by Jonathan Glazer and starring Scarlett Johannson as an emotionless alien preying on lonely Scottish men).
This year’s Hebridean Dark Skies Festival is screening all three, beginning with David Bowie’s most famous and memorable film role.
The Dark Skies Festival is also celebrating Bowie with David Bowie in Space: the Concert on Friday 10 March.
The Hebridean Dark Skies Festival runs from 9-21 March 2023 with arts and astronomy events for all the family at An Lanntair and across Lewis and Harris. Browse the full festival programme here.
The festival is supported by Caledonian MacBrayne and Outer Hebrides Tourism, in partnership with Calanais Visitor Centre, Stornoway Astronomical Society, Gallan Head Community Trust, Lews Castle College UHI, Cala Hotels, and VisitScotland.
