Genesis (2018)

From The Day the Caught Fire (1961) to Children of Men (2008), if there is one thing Brit Sci-Fi films are determined about, it is that the future is not going to be pretty. Genesis which is released this week on DVD, follows very much in this tradition. Genesis paints a gloomy picture of 2069….
