Memory: The Origins of Alien

Tue, May 7 / 7pm
Directed by Alexandre O.Philippe
2019, USA, 95 min

One-night only special engagement! Special Event pricing $10 – no passes.

How did Ridley Scott’s 1979 masterpiece register itself so deeply in our cultural imagination? With brilliant fervor, director Alexandre O. Philippe uncovers the untold origin story rooted in Greek and Egyptian mythologies, underground comics, the art of Francis Bacon and the dark visions behind the most shocking and unforgettable film in sci-fi history. Like Philippe’s previous film, 78/52: Hitchcock’s Shower Scene, which put the iconic shower scene from Psycho under a microscope, Memory – The Origins of Alien is a substantial collection of in-depth interviews, original story notes, rejected concepts and unreleased behind-the-scenes footage that will rouse even the casual fan. – Ravi Srinivasan, Hot Docs
