Creatures of the Night: The Terminator - with intro by Dr. Steven Gerrard
6 Jul 2019
The year is 2029 and the war between the humans and the machines has ravaged the Earth leaving humanity all but wiped out. From this desolate wasteland, two soldiers are sent back in time to Los Angeles, 1984 in order to influence the outcome of a conflict that hasn't yet taken place. One is an unstoppable cyborg assassin, the other a human guerrilla fighter. Serving on opposite sides of the battle, they share the same target: Sarah Connor, an unsuspecting young woman whose unborn child will become the key to saving humankind.
The dystopian imagery as seen in The Terminator is a key influence on the work of sculptural artist Huma Bhabha, who has selected this film to play alongside a major new outdoor commission for this year’s Yorkshire Sculpture International.
The screening will also be preceded by an introduction by Dr. Steven Gerrard a film historian and Senior Lecturer at the Northern Film School.
