This film is not currently scheduled to screen at New Park.


An entertaining inside look at the making of a classic - and compellingly analyses its creation in the context of its era.

A contemplation on the symbiotic collaborative process of movie-making, 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’.

This doesn't just remind you that ‘Alien’ is a masterpiece, but details how it got that way and why it continues to haunt us.
