- Ridley Scott's masterpiece, set in Los Angeles in November 2019, has been an inspiration for author Cesar Sanchez.
"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die." This was the famous monologue with which replicator Roy Batty, played by Dutch actor Rutger Hauer, put an end to one of the greatest science-fiction classics of all time. The adaptation for the big screen of Philip K. Dick's novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? spoke of a dystopian Los Angeles, of a species in decline, divided by the use of artificial intelligence and of the difficulty of finding meaning to humanity in that environment.

This masterpiece of the Seventh Art has worked as its inspiration for César Sánchez, author of the image of #57FICX: "I have always been a great lover of science fiction cinema and, more specifically, of this film by Ridley Scott. When I heard of Rutger Hauer's death a few months ago, I thought it was the perfect time to pay tribute to this film. In addition, it was set precisely in the month in which the Gijón/Xixón Festival takes place. The last factor involved in this process was my desire to add rain as part of one of my designs for the FICX. I immediately thought of Roy Batty's final monologue, in the end it was just about putting all these ideas on paper".

Along with the image designed by Sánchez, the Gijón/Xixón International Film Festival will now use the hashtags #LlueveCine #RainingCinema in all its social network publications, in relation to this design and to one of the most fascinating cinematographic universes that cinema has offered us in all its history.
