FilmSocial Presents: Soylent Green

November 30 / 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm EST

FilmSocial screens the dystopian cult classic Soylent Green. Saturday, November 30th @ 7:30pm at Eyesore Cinema (1176 Bloor, back room).

Soylent Green (1973) brings us to New York in the year 2022. Rising global temperatures combined with food and water shortages only serve to exacerbate capitalism’s pathological excess. Charlton Heston stars in this classic sci-fi/police procedural where the characters must navigate a world marked by deep class division, corporate control over valuable resources, police corruption, and the overall monetization of fear and misery. Sound familiar? The screening follows the next Global Climate Strike event. Stay after the film for a discussion of the themes of the film in light of socialist responses to climate change.
