Overview
Three years after helping to create the amazing imagery in Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, special effects maestro Douglas Trumbull made an auspicious directorial debut with this environmentally themed, highly infuental science fiction classic.

In the distant future, plant life on our planet is extinct. Remaining specimens are cultivated in vast greenhouse-like domes orbiting in space. Bruce Dern stars as Freeman Lowell, dedicated botanist aboard the “Valley Forge”, awaiting the call to refoliate Earth – but is forced into irreversible measures to protect his forest.

Unforgettable and haunting – Silent Running continues to make hippies of young children, even today. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present a new Blu-ray special edition to celebrate the film’s 40th anniversary.
