'Blade Runner', 1982.
Directed by Ridley Scott.

In 2019, ex-detective Rick Deckard is called out of retirement to track down and eliminate a team of humanoid androids that have escaped from an outer space mining colony in a bid to find their creator. Based on the novel ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?’ by Phillip K. Dick, this mysterious neo-noir science fiction film came after the immediate success of Scott’s cinematic masterpiece Alien, in 1979.

Presented as part of the ninth annual Southend-on-Sea Film Festival and the public programme for 'Maximum Overdrive' at Focal Point Gallery.
