Sci-Fi FF: Brainstorm

Science Fiction Film Festival 2022: BRAINSTORM + short film EVIE. Includes introduction by the director of EVIE.

One of the truly legendary figures in sci-fi/fantasy cinema, director Douglas Trumbull passed away in February 2022, leaving a legacy filled with frames of film that are genre-defining – 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968); Silent Running (1972); Close Encounters of The Third Kind (1977); Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979); Blade Runner (1982); The Tree of Life (2011).

In his honour, The Melbourne Science Fiction Film Festival is proud to present this rare big-screen presentation of his 1983 film BRAINSTORM, a thrilling hi-tech drama featuring Oscar-winners Christopher Walken, Louise Fletcher and Cliff Robertson, alongside Natalie Wood, in what would be her final performance.

Screening with short film EVIE – Directed by Alex von Hoffman.
