[ English ] [ français ]

Following in the footsteps of the likes of Roger Deakins, BSC, ASC, it is now Bradford Young’s turn to work alongside director Denis Villeneuve (Incendies, Prisoners, Sicario). Arrival is a daring exercise in style that focuses on the arrival of a fleet of extraterrestrial spaceships on Earth and the way in which the global community must react. The story hones in on a young female specialist in linguistics who is sent by the military officials to attempt to communicate with the creatures. Bradford Young, the radiant cinematographer from Baltimore, who is preparing a new Star Wars, shares his vision of this film with us.
