Fleischer takes us into a dystopian future, and creates a science-fiction classic in the process.

Earth, 2022. A polluted, over-populated world of exhausted natural resources, dead eco-systems, civil disorder, assisted suicide, and murder. With outstanding work from Charlton Heston, and an incredibly poignant final performance from the legendary Edward G Robinson, Fleischer’s unforgettable sci-fi parable, adapted from Harry Harrison’s 1966 novel Make Room! Make Room!, is now more frighteningly resonant than ever.
