The Quiet Earth
After a top-secret experiment misfires, a scientist may be the only man left alive in the world.
The Quiet Earth centres around a scientist called Zac (BRUNO LAWRENCE) who wakes one morning to discover he is alone in the world. The global top-secret energy project (OPERATION FLASHLIGHT) which he has been working on for a year, has changed the world. Humanity seems to have been wiped out.
In director Geoff Murphy's cult sci-fi feature a global energy project has malfunctioned and scientist Zac Hobson (Bruno Lawrence) awakes to find himself the only living being left on earth. At first he lives out his fantasies, helping himself to cars and clothes, before the implications of being 'man alone' sink in, along with his own culpability in the disaster. As this awareness sends him to the brink of madness, he discovers two other survivors. One of them a woman. “Quite simply the best science-fiction film of the 80s” -Los Angeles Daily News.
