The project looks into the accident that took place in 1982 during the shooting of the film of the same name – the movie adaptation of the famed TV series. During a scene in a recreated Vietnamese village three actors were killed by a helicopter sent out of control by flawed special effects. In this multifaceted work in progress Alexis Guillier explores the incident’s numerous ramifications, from the circulation of images to the Twilight Zone tragedy’s implications for popular culture, the movie industry and the legal system. At Les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers he will give an illustrated lecture based on the project.
