Julia Kuperberg, Clara Kuperberg, France, 2011o
Huge insects, scary aliens, XXL tsunamis and terrible epidemics: The American science fiction film has always taken its inspiration from social paranoia. Sources of fear are the terror of a new Hiroshima, the Cold War, Communism, Vietnam, AIDS, terrorism, genetic engineering or scientific progress in general. Through interviews with directors such as James Cameron, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Roland Emmerich, this documentary explores in depth variations of this popular genre.
