EARTH II – film, food and Q&A at Edge Hill station
May 18 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmPAYF
Metal Liverpool welcomes you to a screening of new movie EARTH II accompanied by food, music, and a post-film Q&A.
‘Earth II’ is a found footage action/comedy/documentary film about climate change, Mars colonisation, & human extinction pieced together from hundreds of Hollywood films.
This event was originally scheduled for November 2022, but sadly had to be postponed. It was worth the wait though as we’re pleased to say that this time, we’ll be joined by one of the Directors for a post-film discussion!
“Earth, present day. With human civilization facing ever-worsening climate calamities, the captains of industry set their sights on a new planet. Soon, a secret public-private partnership is selling tickets to Mars at a premium out of reach for the majority of the population, for whom the choice is either indentured servitude in the new offworld colony or perishing in the coming cataclysm. When the world’s governments decide to speed things up by declaring war on Earth and the rabble they’re leaving behind, the planet forges a strategic alliance with an unlikely partner: an underground luddite movement. Some will join the uprising, others will become fanatical defenders of entrenched power structures, while yet others will do everything in their power to continue living exactly the same way they always have.
Its star-studded cast and astronomical production values — painstakingly purloined from some of the biggest blockbusters of the past three decades — make Earth II the most expensive climate disaster epic to be produced for no money.”
Running time is 97min. Recommended for ages 12 and above.
The film will start at 7pm, with our doors open from 6pm.
Food will be provided by Raggas and is included in the price of your ticket (suggested donation of £3 please). The event will finish at around 9pm including the post-movie discussion.
Metal will have hot and cold drinks available for free, with donations welcome. Popcorn TBC!
The film will be followed by a live Q&A with a representative from the Anti-Banality Union.
