FedCon 32 | Vortrag | Alien-Invasionen in Film & TV

Thorsten Walch looks back on over 70 years of extraterrestrial invasions in cinema and television.

Starting with pioneering films for the science fiction genre such as “The Thing “, “The Day the Earth Stood Still”, “Invaders from Mars” and “The War of the Worlds” from the 1950s, through TV series such as “Twilight Zone”, “The Outer Limits”, “The Invaders” and Gerry Anderson’s “UFO” in the 1960s, to later TV and film classics such as “V” in the 80s and “Independence Day” in the 90s: the most famous alien conquests on the big and small screen are to be presented.

Lecturer: Thorsten Walch
Duration: 60 min  -  The Lecture will be held in: german
