Director: Geoff Murphy

91 mins; 1985; New Zealand; Digital

This film screened on Sunday 16th July 2017.

Zac Hobson (Bruno Lawrence) awakens to find himself the sole survivor of a catastrophic malfunction in a secret energy project on which he has been engaged; days turn into weeks and Zac begins to succumb to madness and despair, as the frightening prospect of being the last man on earth becomes a reality.

A speculative sci-fi mystery with a commitment to psychological depth in its characterisation that is rare for the genre, Geoff Murphy’s film builds to a strikingly ambiguous climax that should engender much discussion and debate.

This screening is part of the Dark Skies: A Festival of Science Fast and Fiction season which runs July 13th to 16th 2017. Click here for more information.
