“Demonstrates that the study of a film can be as exciting as the film itself.” –The Wrap
A contemplation on the symbiotic collaborative process of moviemaking, the power of myth, and the collective unconscious, Memory – The Origins of Alien unearths the largely untold origin story behind Ridley Scott’s cinematic masterpiece, and reveals a treasure trove of never-before-seen materials from the O’Bannon and Giger archives – including original story notes, rejected designs and storyboards, exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, and Dan’s original 29-page script from 1971, titled “Memory.”
Bridging the ancient world with Ridley Scott’s complex futuristic universe through a mix of distinctly low-fi VHS aesthetic and stunning 4k Cinemascope aspect-ratio footage, Memory boldly goes where no film essay has gone before, to deliver a revealing and wholly original take on one of Hollywood’s most beloved and iconic shockers.
