No child has been born for 18 years. With extinction on the horizon, the world has fallen into chaos. Recruited by a rebel faction, an embittered bureaucrat (Clive Owen) undertakes a harrowing journey to smuggle a refugee with a secret to an offshore sanctuary. Vivid, visceral, and eerily prescient, Cuarón’s dystopian vision has only grown more chilling with time.
Shown in conjunction with the film course Crossing Borders: The Cinema of Alfonso Cuarón, this screening will be introduced by the course’s instructor, Maurizio Giammarco, Ph.D.
