Text version of this film

 

 

 

 

In Britain there has been a history of innovative anti-smoking campaigns. Recent adverts have featured smokers with fat dripping from their cigarettes to reinforce the link between smoking and heart disease.
This 1985 film uses futuristic images and music that appear to have been influenced by the 1982 film ‘Blade Runner’; which present a nightmarish vision of the first human ‘natural born smoker’.
