The BIG Sci-Fi Podcast 5.16: Silent Running

The 1972 Sci-Fi Film

Come with us as we explore this one-of-a-kind conservation sci-film from the mind and heart of the legendary Douglas Trumbull. His direction of this 1972 film was unexpected, but executed with great love and care for the message of taking better care of our planet. Ahead of it’s time in some ways, and troubling in others, we talk about this film from all the angles. We hope you’ll have fun listening and, if you’ve never seen this film, that you might give it a chance!
