Under the Skin is the story of an alien in human form. Part road movie, part science fiction, part real, it’s a film about seeing our world through alien eyes.
Barry Adamson: “Jonathan Glazer’s haunting sci-fi saga is home to Mica Levi’s extraordinary debut score. She follows Scarlett Johansson’s extraterrestrial movements in an adroit fashion and, scoring in real time, pushes the boundaries of conventional sound signaling (in her score, synthesizers are used to convey feeling as opposed to the opposite). Ultimately Levi brings about something that (in her own words) is hot, physical and disturbing.”
We will be joined by season curator Barry Adamson who will introduce the film.
