Earth in 2022 is overcrowded, polluted and hungry. Homelessness and unemployment are endemic, and food is limited to a scarce supply of Soylent Green – an artificial foodstuff manufactured by the Soylent Corporation. When an executive at the Soylent Corporation is murdered, NYPD detective Robert Thorn (Charlton Heston) is sent to investigate – and slowly starts to uncover a corporate conspiracy that runs to the heart of this dystopian society

Richard Fleischer, US 1973, 15, 97mins
