Memory: The Origins of Alien

Memory: The Origins of Alien

A film by Alexandre O. Philippe

USA, 2019, 93'

“Memory” reveals the chilling, untold origins of Ridley Scott’s cinematic masterpiece "Alien". We discover its roots in Greek and Egyptian mythology, H.P. Lovecraft’s weird fiction, the art of Francis Bacon, and the genius of Dan O’Bannon (writer), H.R. Giger (designer) and, of course, Ridley Scott. Uncovering a treasure trove of unreleased materials from the O’Bannon and Giger estates, “Memory: The Origins of Alien” boldly goes where no film essay has gone before to deliver an entrancingly cinematic and wholly original take on one of Hollywood’s most iconic shockers.  In the year in which "Alien" celebrates its 40th anniversary, we get this revealing documentary by the director who brought us "Doc of the Dead" and "78/52" (MOTELX 2014 and 2017).
