Veggie Tale

Vegetarians, you don’t want to know what the future of food production looks like if it’s anything similar to the eats seen in the Charlton Heston police/sci-fi thriller Soylent Green. The 1973 Saturn Award-winning film finds Heston in 2020 and the planet suffering global warming and over-population. Food is in very short supply. Soylent Green raises ethical questions about food production in a future that, though fictional, feels a little too familiar. After Charlie reveals the secret of soylent green in the closing frames, you'll wonder: Is this what we have to look forward too?

Presented by ASU's Bioethics, Police and Law Program, and the Center for Biology and Society, the film will screen as the third of four installments in the 2013 Bioethics Film Series, dubbed Feast, Famine and Folly.

Join the discussion following the 6 p.m. September 25 screening at ASU’s Life Sciences Tower E-106. The event is free. Visit https://asuevents.asu.edu/bioethics-film-series or call 480-965-8927.

Wed., Sept. 25, 6 p.m., 2013
