Annihilation (2018)

New at the Browning

Author Jeff VanderMeer is scheduled to appear on Thursday, April 26!

Fresh off the raging success his first film Ex Machina, director Alex Garland finds his second source material in the best-selling Southern Reach Trilogy written by Jeff VanderMeer. As with many recent science-fiction films, the traditional genre silo breaks down in this feature, which follows a team of women who go on an expedition into The Shimmer (think, somewhat, of The Zone in Tarkovsky’s Stalker), a mysterious and mutated/-ing zone removed from civilization that has devastated previous voyages into it, which serves, in part, as motivation for some members of the team to tackle it.
