STORY

The screenplay for this pure classic is based on the novel Logan's Run by William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson. It leads us through the premises that everyone has to die when reaching a certain age in order to save scarce resources for everyone else. The story itself follows Logan 5, a "Sandman" whose job it was to sort out anyone trying to escape fate, and who is now facing his own expiry date. Breaking grounds in the world of special effects this film has won a Special Academy Award for its visual effects and six Saturn Awards, including Best Science Fiction Film.

BIO

Michael Anderson započeo je karijeru kao pomoćnik redatelja poznatim filmašima među kojima su i David Lean, a uspješnu i blisku suradnju ostvario je s velikim Peterom Ustinovim na naslovima School for Secrets (1946.), Vice Versa (1948.) i Private Angelo (1949.). Njegov prvi veliki hit bila je ratna drama The Dam Busters (1955.), nakon koje je uslijedio Put oko svijeta u 80 dana (1956) koji je osvojio pet Oscara uključujući i onaj za najbolji film. Među ljubiteljima žanrovskog filma proslavio se znantsveno fantastičnim hitom Loganov bijeg kojeg kritika najprije nije najbolje prihvatila, ali je film svejedno postao nezaobilazni SF klasik. Anderson je dobio Srebrni medaljon za izvanredan rad od Screen Director’s Guild of America i nagradu za životno djelo od Directors Guild of Canada. Preminuo je u svom domu 2018. godini u 98. godini života.
