Overview

Special effects maestro Douglas Trumbull’s directorial debut is this environmentally conscious sci-fi, eulogised by Mark Kermode as the best science fiction film ever made. Bruce Dern plays a botanist astronaut aboard the Valley Forge, a space station containing vast greenhouses that house a wealth of plant-life, awaiting the call to return and reforest a decimated planet earth.

With its Joan Baez soundtrack, bizarre sound effects and ecological leanings, Silent Running is ultimate hippy-era sci-fi.
