Wageningen Dialogue

CineScience movietalk: Soylent Green

Let’s look at the environmental and social challenges of our food system. Despite the great challenges we face, our living environment differs from the dystopian future than was sketched for the year 2022 in the seventies movie Soylent Green: 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? Dr. Evelien de Olde will inspire you with her insightful and inspiring talk before watching the movie.

The introduction by Evelien de Olde will be in English. The movie is English spoken with Dutch subtitles.
