Synopsis

Collection of works by US independent director John Sayles; 'Lianna' (1983) is the story of a lesbian awakening in Lianna (Linda Griffiths) a married mother of two. When Lianna falls in love with Ruth (Jane Hallaren), her teacher, her cheating husband becomes self-righteously indignant and throws her out. A brooding, boilingly erotic film with a delicate overtone throughout. 'Return of the Secaucus Seven' (1980) is Sayles' directorial debut and the inspiration behind later hit film The Big Chill. Seven former schoolmates gather in New Hampshire for a weekend of love, awareness, stock taking and nostalgia. 'The Brother From Another Planet' (1984) is an allegorical cult film from Sayles about a black alien landing in Harlem and his struggles to get along with the melting pot of cultures he encounters there.
