Book to Film at The Backlot: Blade Runner

4 February @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Based on Philip K. Dick’s 1968 novel, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, Ridley Scott’s stylish 1982 adaptation was misunderstood by audiences and critics alike at the time of its initial release but has since gone on to become an extremely influential cult film, starring Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young & Daryl Hannah.

Its set design led to many variable future-noir imitations and the Vangelis soundtrack became a best seller in its own right. Interesting to note that the film is set in the dystopian future Los Angeles of 2019. This session will be introduced by John Newman and Michael O’Rourke who will host a discussion after the screening.

Doors/Bar open 1.00 pm. Film begins 2.00 pm.
