Seeing the Future Through the Eyes of the Past: The Utopia That Never Was

I rarely miss a beat when it comes to science fiction films especially those produced in the 1970s. I love cheesy special effects and horrible acting. I was pleasantly surprised to find this gem of a film the other day.  I had never seen it before and it contains all my favorite 70’s elements. Below is the link to the full movie. The movie only runs about 38 minutes which is probably why it was never shown in wider circulation and why I have not seen it before.

This film postulates an orbital libertarian utopia and is set against a backdrop of a worldwide socialist state. While I discount perfect utopias out of hand, this film postulates some scenarios (the socialist state) that are currently playing out in our own society. Well worth watching.
