Directed by Alexandre O. Philippe whose documentaries (most recently 78/52, The People vs. George Lucas) delve into the secrets of cinema, Memory - The Origins of Alien reveals the exclusive untold origin story behind Ridley Scott’s cinematic masterpiece. Memory was a script that Dan O’Bannon started in 1971, abruptly hitting a wall at page 29. But after the idea gestated for several years, it ultimately took the form of Ridley Scott’s masterpiece, the beloved cult film Alien. A contemplation on the symbiotic collaborative process of moviemaking, the power of myth, and the collective unconscious, Memory - The Origins of Alien 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. You’ll never think of Alien the same way again.
