MEMORY: THE ORIGINS OF ALIEN

Dir: Alexandre O. Philippe
United States / 2019 / 93mins

Everybody remembers the inspired explosive shocker scene in Alien, but not everyone knows the complex and surprising story of the film’s journey.

Dan O’Bannon’s script, combined with H.R. Giger’s artwork were the creative seeds of the film, but there are deeper roots in myth and art that reach further back in time.

Interviews with people close to, and involved in, the making of Alien recall the excitement of bringing it all to life, as well as lively anecdotes from the iconic scene.

After his forensic analysis of Hitchcock’s Psycho, director Alexandre O. Philippe returns to dig into the mythological roots of Alien, its artistic origins, and place in our history and collective unconscious.
