Guest Co-Host: Patrick Bromley
What was once "the kids' version of THX-1138", Solarbabies is the story of seven orphans looking for salvation in a water-starved post-apocalyptic world. The neon-colored film from second-time director Alan Johnson was originally conceived by the artist Metrov. The story behind Solarbabies might be more compelling than the final film itself.
We're joined this week by Patrick Bromley of the F This Movie podcast to make our way through the wasteland of Solarbabies.
