The Berlin International Film Festival is set to pay tributes to David Bowie and Alan Rickman following their deaths earlier this year. The press release from their official website states they will be “commemorating these outstanding artists by presenting three special screenings in their honor”.

 

David Bowie, the British music icon who also appeared in the cult film Labyrinth, will be honoured by the screening of 1976 Science-Fiction film The Man Who Fell To Earth directed by Nicolas Roeg. Bowie stars as the alien Thomas Jerome Newton who comes to earth on a mission to take water back to his planet. Sense and Sensibility directed by Ang Lee will also be screened in honour of Rickman, starring as Colonel Brandon in the film, who falls in love with Kate Winslet’s Marianne.
