Memory: The Origins of Alien

   2019    Art
See how one of the most terrifying movies of all time came to life 40 years ago and the untold origin story behind Ridley Scott's Alien - rooted in Greek and Egyptian mythologies, underground comics, the art of Francis Bacon, and the dark visions of Dan O'Bannon and H.R. Giger. This film is a contemplation on the symbiotic collaborative process of movie-making, the power of myth, and our universal fears.
'Memory: The Origins of Alien' unearths the story behind this cinematic masterpiece, and reveals a treasure trove of never-before-seen materials including original story notes, rejected designs and storyboards, exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, and Dan O'Bannon's original 29 page script from 1971, titled Memory.

Pavarotti

   2019    Art
Pavarotti is a riveting film that lifts the curtain on the icon who brought opera to the people. Ron Howard puts audiences front row center for an exploration of the voice, the man, the legend. Luciano Pavarotti gave his life to the music and a voice to the world. This cinematic event features history-making performances and intimate interviews, including never-before-seen footage and cutting-edge Dolby Atmos technology.
Born in 1935 in Modena in a worker-class family, Luciano Pavarotti felt since his childhood the passion by opera due to his father, an amateur tenor. Blessed with a powerful voice and student of the most important Italy's opera teachers of those times, soon the name of Pavarotti turned in a reference of the genre, giving some of the most remembered live performances in the most important theaters across the world, meeting with politicians and world leaders as well as rock and pop singers to bring concerts for humanitarian causes, over-passing any limit when he was part of The Three Tenors with the too opera singers José Carreras and Plácido Domingo.
