Description

Based on Arthur C. Clarke’s revolutionary science fiction novel first published in 1953, "Childhood’s End" follows the peaceful alien invasion of Earth by the mysterious Overlords, whose arrival begins decades of apparent utopia under indirect alien rule, at the cost of human identity and culture. A story as relevant now as it was half-a-century ago, "Childhood’s End" illustrates a perspective of alien invasion never before seen onscreen, one in which the aliens are not here to conquer humanity but rather to grant humanity a better existence. But what is the meaning of a human life without struggle? What challenges are left when sickness, starvation, and even poverty have become distant memories? And what is the purpose of living when our children begin to evolve into beings that are beyond our comprehension? "Childhood’s End" examines the biggest questions of human existence and man’s place in the universe.
