Streaming Video - 2005

It has been written that "science fiction is the true literature of the 20th century, showing us the present through an image of the future. This documentary looks at classic films and novels, pulp fiction, B movies, and the special-effects wizardry of science fiction adventure epics. Interviews with key writers and filmmakers of the genre, such as Arthur C. Clarke and Paul Verhoeven, map out the history of science fiction. By juxtaposing newsreels with film clips, we reflect on just how allegorical the predictions were. Clips from popular films including Terminator, Dark Star, The Day the Earth Stood Still, Alien, and Star Wars help make the program a visually enriching experience.
