In the year 2027, inside a store, people watch in disbelief a news program announcing that the youngest person in the world known as Baby Diego has died in Argentina.
That moment is decisive for the entire planet, since 18 years have passed since the last birth of a baby. This global infertility has brought civilization to the brink of collapse.
Theo Faron (Clive Owen), a former political activist, who watches this debacle indifferently; until he is kidnapped by a radical group that fights for immigrants called “The Fish”, led by Julian Taylor (Julianne Moore), Theo’s wife who after 20 years asks him to find papers for her to travel with a young African illegal girl named Kee.
“Children of Men” could be taken as an anti-war film, a denunciation of xenophobia and anti-immigrant policies, a Holocaust or a religious allegory, and despite its bleakness, it is as relevant today as ever.
The film is shown in its original language, English with Spanish subtitles.
Free entry with limited space.
