Exclusive clip: “DARK STAR: H.R. GIGER’S WORLD” documentary


There may be no artist in the field of the fantastique whose work is as instantly recognizable as the late H.R. Giger. But how much do you know of the man himself? A new documentary takes you into his world, and we’ve got an exclusive excerpt.

Beginning this Friday, May 15, Icarus Films and KimStim release DARK STAR: H.R. GIGER’S WORLD in theaters across North America (see the complete list of playdates here). Belinda Sallin’s movie explores Giger’s fascinating images in painting and sculpture and his influence on Hollywood (including the classic ALIEN, with rare on-set footage) and other pop culture, and also takes us into the artist’s life and home to reveal him as a person. For more info on the movie, see its webpage and Facebook page.
