'It would look cutting edge-today... and it's wicked Star Wars-y'

Time Magazine

George Lucas' directorial debut film THX 1138 will be re-scored for the digital age with subs, breaks and riddims by Asian Dub Foundation.

A film every Star Wars fan needs to see. THX 1138 is the mythical sci-fi classic that became the blueprint for epic sci-fi sagas to this day. Now re-scored live with Lucas' blessing by the electronic behemoth Asian Dub Foundation, GRAPHIC presents THX 1138.

THX 1138 continues to ripple through pop culture today, the legendary number became as big as the Death Star, appearing as Chewbacca’s alleged cellblock; the numberplate of the yellow hot rod in American Graffiti; a cosmic redneck bar in Futurama; and even the cover art for Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky’. 

Produced by Francis Ford Coppola, featuring a young Robert Duvall and originally scored by Grammy Award-winner Lalo Schifrin (Mission: Impossible, Cool Hand Luke), GRAPHIC brings you George Lucas’ THX 1138 for a finale in a festival lineage of sold-out film favourites.
