Looking for scifi films of the late 70's-80's about aliens
For the purpose of research, I am looking for scifi films where aliens are seemingly portrayed/imaged as African tribal people. I know that there has been some, yet my research has not brought me to too many. Does anyone have an idea of a fiction film of that sort? It could also be films that deal with the NASA space shuttles that were launched in the late 70's or films that have to do with the colonization of space.
Would be happy to get any suggestion that you may have. Thanks in advance. Sarah

Re: Looking for scifi films of the late 70's-80's about aliens
I moved your post the General Films Discussions.
I don't know of any scifi films where aliens were portrayed as African tribal people. The original series of Star Trek had an third season episode The Paradise Symdrome when Kirk loses his memory and lives among native North Americans.
Often the cliché of an alien warrior race is based upon native Earth races, the Japanese Samurai being the most obvious influence.
The space shuttle appeared in many films, among them:
The Astronaut's Wife
Airplane II: The sequel
The Dark Side of the Moon
Also the TV series Buck Rogers in the 21st Century and Odyssey 5
And the colonisation of space is a given in any film involving spaceships really.
Use the search function on the IMDb website and searching "plots" and then "space shuttle" or "colonisation of space".
