Set in 2022, this science fiction classic presents a dystopian future where overpopulation and lack of food threaten the very existence of the human race. The answer is Soylent Green.

Pollution and overpopulation have exhausted the planet’s resources by 2022. Soylent Industries provides nourishment for the teeming masses using plankton gathered from the oceans.

When a member of the board is murdered, New York homicide detective Thorn (Charlton Heston) is assigned to the case. Frustrated in his investigations, he begins to piece together a conspiracy that reveals what sacrifices might be required to secure the future of the human race.

An underrated dystopian thriller with a wonderful final performance from the great Edward G. Robinson.

This screening is part of Film Feels Curious, a UK-wide cinema season, supported by the National Lottery and BFI Film Audience Network. Explore all films and events at filmfeels.co.uk.
