The late, great Douglas Trumbull was known primarily for his groundbreaking visual effects work in films like 2001, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and Blade Runner - but he was a visionary director as well, and though he only made a couple of films, their striking imagery and heartfelt messages have become a formative part of many young science fiction fans' lives - especially ours here at MG! Join us tonight as we take a look at his first effort, the cli-fi classic Silent Running, starring Bruce Dern as a spacebound eco-terrorist!
