The Film Unit at Sheffield University Union of Students produced many fascinating films during the 1950s, ‘60s and ‘70s. This one, with its surreal landscapes and alarmingly prescient storyline, is definitely on the imaginative outer limits of their collection. It has five men on the run from a controlling state organisation that is capturing the population on 3D film images, thereby making everyone dispensable.
