CineScience movie talk: Soylent Green

With her movie talk, dr. Evelien de Olde links the current environmental and social challenges of our food system to a dystopian seventies movie. It is 2022, the earth is overpopulated and polluted, natural resources have been exhausted and the population is solely fed by Soylent Industries. When investigating the murder of the company’s CEO, a detective unravels a bizarre and disturbing business secret. What remained fiction and what became reality over the past decades?
