Having lifted the veil on one of crime cinema’s groundbreaking scenes in 78/52, Alexandre Philippe turns his attention to the chest-busting sequence in Ridley Scott’s Alien, showing the eponymous creature’s initial gory emergence. Employing the same principle of throwing the spotlight on a specific sequence, this documentary filmmaker plunges his audience deep into the mysteries of a monumental saga and the functioning of an entire genre.

By questioning the people involved in the construction of this modern myth, Philippe involves his audience in a thought- provoking analysis of the genesis and development of Alien.
