Silent Running

Silent Running

1972

Directed by Douglas Trumbull, who worked on the special effects for 2001: A Space Odyssey, this film tells the story of the last forest, which just happens to be on a spaceship. Bruce Dern plays the main character, who refuses to heed an order to destroy the plants and return the freighters to service. With all plant life gone from the Earth, this last domed ship is the last refuge for Nature, as we know it.
