“In the summer of 1981, surrounded on all sides by big budget blockbusters like Raiders of the Lost Ark, Clash of the Titans, Dragonslayer, For Your Eyes Only and Superman II, a modestly scaled independent actioner / social satire called Escape from New York opened, seized the imagination of the public; then went on to become one of the most successful films of it’s year as well as one of the most popular cult films of all time. In this retrospective the original cast and crew (incl. director John Carpenter, co-writer Nick Castle, producer Debra Hill, cinematographer Dean Cundey, and stars Kurt Russell, Adrienne Barbeau, Issac Hayes, Harry Dean Stanton and more) look back decades later on one of the most enjoyable filmic experiences of their careers.”
