About the Film:

Alfonso Cuarón’s CHILDREN OF MEN is set in a future Britain that has closed its borders and instituted a police state after the world is thrown into chaos once it becomes no longer possible to conceive children. Depicting a world where humanity no longer has a future, CHILDREN OF MEN looks for the possibility of hope in a state of perpetual terror and endless war. The incredible camerawork and editing, including an unbelievable 4-minute tracking shot of a car attack, work to make this film’s portrayal of the militarization of society all the more poignant.
