Film Synopsis: White Plastic Sky

Director: Tibor Bánóczki, Sarolta Szabó | Countries of production: Hungary, Slovakia | Year: 2023 | Length: 111 min
Language: Hungarian with English subtitles | Age: 12+ years

In this gripping dystopia about life after climate apocalypse, humans can only live until 50 before they are turned into trees.

Budapest, 2123. Climate disaster has rendered the earth uninhabitable, except in one sealed enclave where the last of humanity can be found: yet survival is contingent on every human being turned into a tree at the age of 50. Reckoning with grief, Nora volunteers her body before her time – and her husband Stefan embarks on a dangerous journey across the earth’s barren landscape to save her life. A spectacular, rotoscoped sci-fi odyssey imagining how we come back from the brink.


Content notes: Contains depictions of suicide, surgery, blood, human remains, infant and adult death.

Access notes: Mixture of bright and dark images, with consistent dialogue throughout. Gentle ambient music throughout, with loud music and flickering lights in one scene near the beginning of the film (00:13).

Screening as part of #TOAFF23



Beyond the Screen

Join us in conversation after the film with Esraa Husain (founder of U Belong Glasgow) to explore the possibilities, and limitations, of dystopian science fiction, and how we can imagine different futures, together.

Booking Information

To make our events more accessible, we operate a sliding scale ticket policy (thanks to SQIFF for leading the way) across all our venues and online. Choose what to pay based on your personal circumstances, from £0-10. All we ask is that you are honest with us so that we can continue offering this flexibility to those who need it most. When you pay a higher price for a ticket, you help subsidise a ticket for somebody on a lower income.


Graphic with turquoise background with the white Take One Action logo in the top left corner. White text top-right reads 'Sliding Scale Ticketing' and white text underneath reads 'How much should I pay?; £0-2: I find it difficult to meet everyday costs; £4-6: I can meet everyday costs but sometimes find it stressful to do so; £6-8: I can meet everyday costs; £10: I can comfortably meet my everyday costs and have savings too'
