This second installment of The History of the Future film series rounds up another set of delightfully schlocky, thought-provoking films from decades past. With introductions and comments from scholars and experts, we'll examine stories about the future from the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s and think about how accurate those visions turned out to be.
In the year 2274, young residents enjoy an idyllic, hedonistic lifestyle within the protective confines of a domed city. The general belief is that when each person turns 30, they are reincarnated for another blissful life cycle. Those who know the much darker truth become «runners» and flee to a hidden sanctuary. When law enforcement officer Logan (Michael York) goes undercover to locate the refuge, he winds up instead trying to initiate a revolution with runner Jessica (Jenny Agutter).
