The Brother From Another Planet (1984)

Black alien on the run from his home planet crashes into New York Harbor in 1984. He climbs out of the water and finds himself at the closed Ellis Island Immigration Centre.
The Brother finds his way into Harlem and quickly discovers the power relations of race, drugs and economics. Two white bounty hunters from the Brother's home planet are on his trail. The film is a metaphor of slavery, racism and xenophobia.
Directed by John Sayles
