South African actress said an uncertain and dangerous future like the one portrayed in the movie Mad Max : Fury Road awaits humanity unless we succeed in solving social and environmental issues.
George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road depicts a dystopian future with scarce resources, desert landscapes and collapsed civilisation, where men and women are enslaved and exploited by a sick dictator.
Totalitarian regimes, eugenetics and feminism are also themes explored in the thriller.
Theron, leading female character in the movie, said the settings used for the movie looked exaggerated to her at the beginning, but she then realised some locations in the world already experience extreme weather and water shortages.
During a press conference, the actress said, “It felt very grounded in real events. the idea of globalisation and global warming and drought and the value of water, and leadership becoming completely out of hand.”
“There are images on Google right now of Sahara desert sand being blown, in that state, all through Africa. And that’s frightening. The hair lifted up on the back of my neck. What makes [the film] even scarier is that it is something that is not far off if we don’t pull it together.”
Theron has been known for supporting anti HIV/AIDS programme in Africa and working with the UN on women’s rights.
Mad Max: Fury Road was presented at the 68th Cannes Film Festival on Thursday and released in theatres on Friday.
