Summary
In 2019, Ridley Scott's Alien celebrates the 40th Anniversary of its theatrical release. Memory reveals the chilling, untold origins of Ridley Scott's cinematic masterpiece Alien, rooted in Greek and Egyptian mythology, underground comics, parasitology, H.P. Lovecraft's weird fiction, the art of Francis Bacon, and the symbiotic 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 boldly goes where no film essay has gone before, to deliver an entrancingly cinematic and wholly original take on one of Hollywood's most beloved and iconic shockers
