FORT MASON FLIX: Starship Troopers
Fort Mason Center for Arts & CultureOct 20th @ 9:00pm
“Young people all over the globe are joining up to save the future.”
About: In the 23rd century, the martial Global Federation of Earth struggles against an alien species of bug-like opponents. High school friends Johnny Rico (Van Dien), Carmen Ibanez (Richards) and Carl Jenkins (Patrick Harris) join the military service that promises full Federation citizenship, only to travel different paths as soldiers in an ever-deepening war. Cloaked in regalia reminiscent of 20th century fascist regimes, the fight against the space bugs casts this future war with all the complications of our not-so-distant past.
