Still image from the film Soylent Green
Released in 1973, and set in 2022, Soylent Green is a dystopian vision of our world overcome by pollution, overpopulation, poverty, depleted resources, and climate change. Charlton Heston stars as Frank Thorn, a poor, scrappy police detective whose investigation into the death of a wealthy businessman leads him to the Soylent Corporation and a dark secret. The film is a lasting part of the American science-fiction canon and offers an understated critique of modern society. (2K DCP Presentation)
