Filmmaker John Sayles' first bonafide box-office success, Brother from Another Planet centers on a black escaped slave from a faraway planet (Joe Morton) who finds himself on the mean streets Harlem. Though the locals are put off by the slave's inability to speak, they are won over by his technical wizardry.
He is adopted as a brother by his new friends, who protect him from pursuing white aliens played by director Sayles and David Strathairn.
