AlienationTouched, the sell-out smash of December's Santa Fe Film Festival, will get a special two-night screening in Albuquerque and Santa Fe this coming week. On Tuesday, Feb. 23, the film will screen at The Screen at the College of Santa Fe campus (1600 St. Michael's Drive). On Wednesday, Feb. 24, the film will show at Madstone Theaters in Albuquerque. Both screenings begin at 7 p.m. The film by Laurel Chiten is a documentary-style examination of people whose lives have been “touched” by alleged alien abductions. Dr. John E. Mack, a Pulitzer Prize-winning expert in the field of alien encounters, will be on hand for both screenings. Mack is the author of Passport to the Cosmos: Human Transformation and Alien Encounters as well as Witnessing: Abductees as Sacred Truth-Tellers and is one of the professionals interviewed in Chiten's film. Tickets are $10 at the door both nights.

Free Stuff!It's been a while since they've done anything in Albuquerque, but the fine folks at on-line promotion company volition.com are handing out some free passes for an upcoming movie screening. The film is the Jim Carrey/Kate Winslet film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. This oddball sci-fi outing is the latest from writer Charlie Kaufman (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation). No word yet on the date, but if you want to secure those tickets, you'd better act quickly. Log on to www.volition.com/
