The classic sci-fi film Soylent Green will be the launching point for a discussion about criminal and food injustice.
In the year 2022 New York City is crowded with the homeless and hungry. While most are barely kept alive by state-rationed soylent green, the elite live in luxury high-rises stocked with delicacies. The mysterious death of an agro-business board member throws Police Detective Thorn (Charlton Heston) into the secret world of the necro-food industrial complex.
The film is an opportunity to consider imagined and actual injustices, and imagined and actual strategies of resistance, in NYC 2022 and NYC 2014.
This discussion will be facilitated by Kevin Quirolo.
