Dark Star- H.R. Giger's World
Where others flee, he makes his home. What others dread, he makes his habitat. What others fight to suppress, he drags back to the surface. Throughout his life, HR Giger inhabited the world of the uncanny: a dark universe on the brink of many an abyss.
In the film, Giger reminisces about holding a skull in his hands for the first time as a 6-year-old boy, as if it were only yesterday. It was a gift from his father, who was the town chemist in Chur. The boy managed to overcome a fear for the first time, and he demonstrated this by tying a string to the skull and dragging it behind him through the alleys of his hometown: It was a formative experience, and that skull is the foundation of his world. A world in which the insignia, horrors and mysteries of death should remain omnipresent.
