Join AND in a filmic foray that abandons the movie theatre in favour of pubs, galleries, safari parks and the great outdoors.
AND is transforming Preston’s thriving covered market into a cinematic platform for Nicholas Roeg’s stunning sci-fi classic, The Man Who Fell To Earth. Focusing on an extraterrestrial (David Bowie) visiting Earth to get water for his drought stricken planet, Roeg’s meditative capturing of earthly pleasures, alienation and the
destructive pull of greed is an alluring yet dispiriting vision of the not too distant future.
