Description

Blade Runner – The Final Cut (Plus Guest Speakers) (2007 (1982))




Directed by: Ridley Scott




It’s 2018 and LA is a dystopian urban sprawl. Rick Deckard (Ford) is a blade runner or bounty hunter of replicants. Created by the Tyrell Corporation replicants are androids almost indistinguishable from humans. They are illegal on Earth after a bloody mutiny on an off-world colony, yet six Nexus replicants have purposefully made their way back to Earth. The thing about Nexus-6 replicants is they have the potential to develop human emotions, that’s why they’ve been restricted to 4 year life-spans. Plus there’s a prototype replicant, Rachel, who’s been implanted with Eldon Tyrell’s niece’s memories. A genre-changing sci-fi thriller classic with cult following – questions abound: what does it mean to be human? Is Deckard a replicant? What does the unicorn in Deckard’s Final Cut dream represent? Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?




Don’t miss the screening of 25th anniversary director’s cut of this influential film. Post-screening Q&A with science journalist Michael Brooks, author of ‘Science(ish): The Peculiar Science Behind the Movies’ (2017).




‘Timeless sci-fi classic…an overwhelming experience.’ Mark Kermode Observer
