THE QUIET EARTH
1985, 91 min, New Zealand, Dir: Geoff Murphy

New Zealand scientist Zac Hobson (Bruno Lawrence) awakens one morning to discover that his global energy research experiment “Project Flashlight” has caused all of humanity to vanish. Just as the solitude drives Zac to the brink of madness, two others appear: a young woman (Alison Routledge) and a Maori man (Pete Smith). But how did these three survive? And is there another apocalyptic event on the horizon? Based on the Craig Harrison novel, THE QUIET EARTH is a sci-fi thriller whose mysteries will keep you thinking long after its haunting final image.
