Blade Runner

Ridley Scott, 116 mins, USA, 1982.

In Los Angeles in 2019, Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) is a 'blade runner', a policeman assigned to track down and kill artificial humans ('replicants') built through genetic engineering.

This lecture draws attention to the questions Blade Runner raises about the nature of human identity. It also considers the distinctive look of the film, the science fiction tradition from which it emerged and the different perspectives presented in the film's original theatrical version and the director's cut.

This program can also be requested as an ESL session.
