SATURDAY, OCTOBER 2 @ 6:00pm EST:
“The place is here…the time is now…and the journey into the shadows that we’re about to watch could be our journey.”
Those are the first words spoken by Rod Serling, the creator, narrator, and head writer of the legendary television series The Twilight Zone at the very beginning of its first episode, “Where is Everybody?” that aired at 10pm on Friday night, October 2, 1959.
Now, over 60 years since its debut, “the twilight zone,” the concept, has become a psychological buzzword, unearthing automatic associations of the existential and the surreal in the commonplace–while so many of its greatest episodes have been proven eerily prescient, “predicting” the crises we’re facing now in the 21st Century.
So join me as I trace The Twilight Zone’s roots in early 20th Century surrealism, and in turn its influence on psychedelia, movies, television, modern art and popular culture, while also screening the series’ debut episode, “Where is Everybody?” in its entirety, at the exact night and hour of its 62nd Anniversary!
