Escapes Overview

Escapes blazes a wild path through mid-20th-century Hollywood via the experiences of 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. 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. Equal parts dense and fleet, Escapes shows how one man's personal journey can quietly shape a medium's future.
