About the Event
Science Fiction Films are usually scientific, visionary, imaginative, and usually presented through unique
settings, advanced technology (i.e., robots and spaceships), scientific developments, or by the use of fantastic
special effects. Sci-Fi films are complete with heroes, shadowy villains, and unknown or inexplicable forces.
Quite a few examples of science-fiction cinema owe their origins to writers Jules Verne and H.G. Wells.
A gentle alien becomes stranded on Earth, is discovered and befriended by a young boy named Elliott who brings the extraterrestrial home and introduces E.T., to his brother and his little sister. The children decide to keep its existence a secret. Soon, however, E.T. falls ill, resulting in government intervention and a dire situation for both Elliott and the alien.
