Film synopsis

An artist who defies conventional categorisation, Brian Eno is a musician, composer, record producer, music theorist, singer and visual artist. His incredible and varied output over the past forty years has defined him as one of the most enigmatic and sought after collaborators in music today, with a reputation amplified by all who have worked with him.   Best known for his early involvement with key art rock outfit Roxy Music, Eno paved the recording scene with extensive production duties for the likes of Irish super group U2, David Bowie, Talking Heads, John Cale, Depeche Mode, Paul Simon, Devo, Grace Jones and more recently Coldplay. One of the principal innovators of ambient music, his influence and artistry is indubitable.   The Man Who Fell To Earth 1971-1977 details Eno’s rapid ascent during the excitement of a changing music scene, where electronica was no longer feared, but accepted as a dynamic and bold assault on the senses. Exploring his life, influences and creative output, this illuminating film features exclusive interviews with key associates, including biographer Dave Sheppard, rock critic Robert Christgau, musicians Jon Hassell, Percy Jones, Hans Joachim Roedelius, and Brian Turrington, taking us from Eno’s debut with Roxy Music through to his last rock album, Before and After Science. Incorporating interviews, audio clips and archival footage this is a compelling story of an amazing artist, supported by musical examples, laudatory stories and much more.
