Marrying Britain's honourable tradition of dystopian sci-fi with the eco documentary form, Armstrong's film is an aesthetically pragmatic, ethically dogmatic attempt to save the world. More or less a documentary study telling six stories from four continents, the film's strength lies in their variety, and the compelling use of sci-fi as a framing device, with Postlethwaite playing a character looking after the Global Archive in the future.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
