Earth’s plantlife is dying, and a fleet of spacecraft carries all that remains of the planet’s flora. Bruce Dern plays the only crew member who cares about the cargo, so when an order comes through to destroy it, he rebels. A melancholy, visionary film, and a stunning directing debut for effects wizard Trumbull.
Introduced by Jill McCardle, corporate accountability campaigner at Friends of the Earth Europe
