Memory: The Origins of Alien


Alexandre O. Philippe (78/52: Hitchcock's Shower Scene) returns to explore the origins of Ridley Scott’s seminal 1979 sci-fi horror film and how it was shaped by the singular and collective vision of all involved. Featuring a treasure trove of insights, reflections and trivia, it flits from writer Dan O’Bannon’s original script Star Beast, to H. R. Giger’s startling designs, to the influences of Egyptian and Greek mythology, Francis Bacon, Hieronymus Bosch and Joseph Conrad, and to its subtle themes of imperialism, terrorism and political corruption.

A riveting insight into the very art of moviemaking.

We are screening Alien from Friday 30 August to Monday 2 September - info/tickets HERE
