Synopsis

In a film that is now scarily prescient, Bruce Dern is the caretaker of a space-station greenhouse sent into orbit in the early 21st century after Earth has been denuded of all foliage. Dern, a plant-loving hippie, is ordered to destroy the greenhouses and return to Earth. He disobeys, kills his human mates and makes do with the company of two robots. Afloat on his Garden of Eden, Dern hopes to create a second chance for mankind. Visually stunning.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
