1982, USA, Ridley Scott, 117 min.
Introduced by photographers Jenny Gage and Tom Betterton
Ridley Scott’s dystopian masterpiece—adapted from Philip K. Dick’s novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?—brings audiences to a dark and intimidating world where replicants have infiltrated and need to be exterminated. Harrison Ford plays Rick Deckard and is joined on screen by a cast that gives an astounding humanity to the futuristic land. The groundbreaking special effects and ghastly cinematography earned the film marvelous reviews, including one by Dick, who said: “It was my own interior world. They caught it perfectly.”
