Screening & Live Event
Blade Runner with Hampton Fancher in person
Monday, May 16, 2016, 7:00 p.m.
With Hampton Fancher in person
Presented in collaboration with Esopus magazine
Dir. Ridley Scott. 1982-2007, 117 mins. DCP. With Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young. Co-screenwriter and executive producer Fancher was one of the primary creative visionaries behind the dystopian masterpiece of the 1980s. Set in a neon-soaked, futuristic Los Angeles, it follows Harrison Ford’s special operative Rick Deckard on an assignment to track down four rogue replicants—androids virtually indistinguishable from humans being manufactured by the shadowy Tyrell Corporation (the miniature set of which is on permanent display at the Museum). A film that’s stature has only grown with time; Blade Runner is both a visual triumph and a prescient exploration of what it means to be human.
