    Sorry, but I have two grim movies to suggest, The Road and The Survivalist with the latter being little known and spot on IMHO. Let’s work harder to make these choices irrelevant.

    I have always liked “Soilent Green” for a direct message.

    More recently, “Wall-E” is, IMHO, a brilliant movie with both direct and subtle messages for adults and children.

    ‘Silent Running’ with Bruce Dern – no contest. As they say, ‘An oldie but a goodie!’ And even more relevant today than when it was filmed.

  • Julian Cribb

    The Age of Stupid – by far the best exposition of the perils of ignoring climate change. A museum curator traces the origins of the global climate catastrophe by searching the archives of the early C21st. Stars the late, brilliant Pete Postlethwaite.

    “If you could get a bunch of people together to watch…,” which should not be limited to the imaginative limits of pre-apocalypse film makers who have to be entertaining even if doing another zombie-apocalypse movie. If a commercial film must be shown, I’d go with The Postman because there is still a remnant functional population that could rebuild. As H.T. Odum noted, “If society does not succeed in changing attitudes and institutions for a harmonious descent, the alternative is to prepare information packages for the contingency of restart after crashing.” The postman was rebuilding by enabling information packages to be shared, our best hope for continuing truly sustainable development. Otherwise I’d show From the Heart of the World: The Elder Brothers’ Warning, a 1990 warning from the remnant Tairona civilization, which is on YouTube, or the 2011 warning, Aluna: There is No Life without Thought, a film made by the Tairona because we didn’t listen to the first warning. Aluna is currently also viewable on YouTube, so download both to preserve important information packages. Transcripts of both are also available. Google “aluna transcript”
