Best compost-triumphs-over-reality film
The award goes to "Silent Running." In this 1972 movie, the caretaker of a spaceship containing Earth's last nature reserve is told to destroy the ship. The caretaker cuts the ship loose instead of snuffing it, in the hope that the ship will drift off and take root somewhere that hasn't blown up. -Lisa Vaas
