History of the Future: Soylent Green


Event Details


Join ASU’s Center for Science and the Imagination in partnership with Majestic Neighborhood Cinema in Tempe to view Soylent Green on the silver screen. This screening is part of a greater film series: The History of the Future, exploring gripping, cinematic visions of the future across the past four decades. 

Join us Wednesday, January 18 at 7pm for a screening of Soylent Green, an ecological thriller from 1973 that  depicts food insecurity and overpopulation in the (then) far-off future year of 2022. 

The film will be introduced by Dr. Christy Spackman, an assistant professor in the School for the Future of Innovation in Society and the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts who studies the environmental and social impact of scientific and technological efforts to manipulate sensory experiences of smelling and tasting.
