The Day the Earth Caught Fire
지구가 불타는 날
- Eco Apocalypse Now
|Synopsis||An apocalyptic sci-fi movie set against the backdrop of London, U.K. in 1961 when the Cold War was at its peak. It reflects the rampant fear of the arms race and nuclear weapons tests of the times. The protagonist who is a journalist is investigating the extreme heat wave when he uncovers the fact that the nuclear weapons tests that the Soviet Union and the U.S. had conducted simultaneously have pushed Earth out of orbit. Earth is overheated and the human race is in danger of burning to death. Scientists set off even more nuclear bombs to alter Earth’s orbit and marshal law is proclaimed worldwide. This underrated disaster movie is a dramatic expression of a situation where an abnormal climate brings about a crisis for the human race.|
