In 2019, Ridley Scott’s Alien will celebrate 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.
Discover a treasure trove of unreleased materials from the O’Bannon and Giger estates, including original story notes, rejected designs and storyboards, sketches and concept art, behind-the-scenes photographs and footage, and Dan O’ Bannon’s never-before-seen, original 29-page script from 1971, titled ‘Memory’.
A fitting and long-overdue tribute to the man who started it all, 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.
