Memory: The Origins of Alien

Nova exclusive! Rooted in Greek and Egyptian mythologies, stories by HP Lovecraft, underground comics, the art of Francis Bacon, and the dark visions of Dan O'Bannon and H.R. Giger, the origins of Ridley Scott's iconic science fiction thriller Alien are revealed in MEMORY. A contemplation on the symbiotic collaborative process of movie-making, the power of myth, and our collective unconscious, Alexandre O.
