INDIs Movie Night presents Ridley Scott's 1979 sci-fi horror film Alien, a rare chance to see this classic icon of cinema on the big screen.

When the crew of the merchant spaceship Nostromo answer a distress call from a nearby moon, a search party discovers a colony of alien eggs. Following an attack on one of the crew they return to the ship only to discover they have brought an unknown creature on board, which is hunting them down one by one. As the crew are killed, it is up to Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) to take control and try to destroy the creature and prevent it from reaching Earth.

Rise of the Final Girl: Women in Horror panel discussion
To accompany the screening, we will be hosting a panel discussion to talk about the monstrous-feminine themes in the film, the horror trope 'The Final Girl' as epitomised by Sigourney Weaver as Ripley in Alien and the roles of women in horror filmmaking. The panel will feature Dr. Alison Peirse, David Maguire, and Evangeline Spachis, and will be hosted by Martin Grund.
