Escapes screening

Friday, November 10, 2017 @ 19:3020:59

The Dryden will screen Escapes (Michael Almereyda, U.S. 2017, 89 min., DCP).

Directed by Michael Almereyda (Experimenter) and executive produced by Wes Anderson (The Grand Budapest Hotel), Escapes blazes a wild path through mid-twentieth-century Hollywood via the experiences of Hampton Fancher—flamenco dancer, actor, and unlikely producer and screenwriter of the landmark sci-fi classic Blade Runner. (Fancher also penned the story for its sequel, Blade Runner 2049.) A consummate raconteur, Fancher recounts episodes from his remarkable life—romantic misadventures with silver-screen stars, wayward acts of chivalry, jealousy, and friendship—matched with a parallel world of film and TV footage wherein Fancher plays cowboys, killers, fops, cads, and the occasional hero. Escapes shows how one man's personal journey can unexpectedly shape the future of an entire medium.
