Coming Soon

Meet the amazing Hampton Fancher: flamenco dancer, actor, and the unlikely producer and screenwriter of the landmark sci-fi classic Blade Runner, as well as co-writer of its sequel, Blade Runner 2049. He ran away from home at age 11 to go to Spain to become a professional flamenco dancer; tall and handsome, he soon went into acting and appeared in many classic TV shows (“Bonanza,” “Perry Mason,” etc.), was the boyfriend of Teri Garr and later Barbara Hershey, and was briefly married to Sue Lyon post-Lolita. A consummate raconteur, Fancher relates his remarkable life—romantic misadventures with silver-screen stars, wayward acts of chivalry, jealousy and friendship—matched with a parallel world of film and TV footage wherein Fancher plays cowboys, killers, fops, cads and the occasional hero. He also reveals his pursuit of Philip K. Dick and the strange saga of how Blade Runner came to be made. Directed by Michael Almereyda (Experimenter, Hamlet, Nadja) and executive produced by Wes Anderson, this tremendously entertaining new documentary blazes a wild path through mid-20th Century Hollywood, showing how one man’s personal journey can quietly shape a medium’s future.
