Dark Star - H.R. Giger’s World

Available on MUBI, Prime Video
Surrealist artist H. R. Giger (1940–2014) terrified audiences with his Oscar-winning monsters in Ridley Scott's Alien. Sci-fi, horror, music, album covers, tattoos and fetish art have been influenced by his dark, intricate paintings and sculptures depicting birth, death and sex. Both a mesmerizing introduction to Giger's oeuvre and a must-see for Giger devotees, Belinda Sallin's definitive documentary Dark Star: H. R. Giger's World shares the intimate last years of the artist's life and reveals how deeply he resided within his own artistic visions. "Giger's work disturbs us, spooks us, because of its enormous evolutionary time span...It shows us, all too clearly, where we come from and where we are going." - Timothy Leary
