Brian Eno The Man Who Fell to Earth movie scene

Eno glams it up with Bryan Ferry in the new documentary about his early career.

MVD Entertainment Group released the documentary Brian Eno, 1971-1977 : The Man Who Fell To Earth on DVD on May 17, 2011.

This film — the first about the man who is highly regarded as a musician, composer, record producer, music theorist, singer and visual artist — explores Brian Eno’s life, career and music between the years 1971 and 1977, the period that some view as his golden age, others as just one era in a long, extraordinary and very eclectic career.

Brian Peter George St. John le Baptiste de la Salle Eno — Brian to his friends, Eno to the rest of us — defies categorization. The documentary covers some of what he does, but he’s probably best known for his early work with Roxy Music, his production duties for U2 and Coldplay and as one of the principal innovators of ambient music. But however he’s pigeon-holed, this remarkable, creative visionary remains among the most influential individuals to have ever worked within the music industry.

Brian Eno, 1971-1977: The Man Who Fell To Earth features numerous exclusive interviews and contributions from a range of musicians, writers (including his official biographer), colleagues, collaborators and friends – plus archival footage, performance and studio film and a host of bonus features highlighted by rare footage and bonus additional interviews.

The DVD carries a list price of $19.95.
