To introduce our new strand of research into entertainment & urbanism, Michael Anderson's 1976 film shows the remains of human civilization living a hedonistic lifestyle in a sealed domed city. Set in 2274, this computer-run utopia takes care of all aspects of life, including reproduction.
Citizens understand that in order to maintain the city, they must undergo the fiery ritual of Carousel when they reach Last Day, their 30th birthday, and are given the chance to be reborn. If the Lifeclock crystal in the palm of your hand started to blink, would you try and outrun the Sandmen?
