Renowned as one of the greatest performers of all time, Eric Clapton is the only ever three-time-inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and an 18-time Grammy Award winner.
From his traumatic childhood to his long and difficult struggle with drugs and alcohol and the tragic loss of his son, Clapton always found an inner strength and healing in music. Told through his own words and songs, as well as those of his family, friends, musical collaborators – including BB King, Jimi Hendrix and George Harrison – Eric Clapton: Life in 12 Bars is a moving, revealing and surprising film.
Multipass for four films (excluding Aliens) is available for €35 at IFI Box Office.
Is mankind alone in the universe, and if not, are his extra-terrestrial neighbours friendly?
Save for a few peaceable exceptions, filmmakers have historically answered this timeless question with a resounding ‘no’, depicting alien visitors as remorseless destructors hell-bent on annihilation.
The films chosen for this year’s Dark Skies science-fiction festival are a testament to just how nasty these inter-species encounters can be; from the hostile Martian invaders in Byron Haskin’s adaptation of H.G. Wells perennial The War of the Worlds, a key entry to the 1950s sci-fi cycle, to the shape-shifting horror of John Carpenter’s modern classic The Thing, intergalactic emissaries rarely come in peace. Keep watching the Dark Skies!
