Imagine if you had the most influential people in the world as a captive audience for the length of a single film. We’re talking about politicians, industry leaders, tech giants, celebrities, diplomats – the people with what you might define as possessing power (whatever that is these days).

Maybe offer a vision of happiness to remind them that the world might just be worth saving? Or something else entirely?
This issue celebrates cinema as a force for good, a thought experiment inspired by the idea that so much narrative cinema now involves saving the planet from destruction. Pick up a copy to find out what the likes of Guillermo del Toro, the Safdie brothers, JA Bayona, Hope Dickson Leach, Colin Trevorrow and Michael Smiley would screen to avert total annihilation.
