Trailer for independent film “Eden Log”

The constant flow of independent film productions onto services like YouTube just seems to underscore how large the world-wide science fiction economy is. It’s impossible for one person to know about all of it or track it easily.

This story, “Eden Log”, reminds me of an old Gene Roddenberry concept that was redone a couple of times (ultimately resulting in the Kevin Sorbo action series Gene Roddenberry’s Andromeda). In “Genesis II”, a 1973 made-for-television movie, Alex Cord starred as Dylan Hunt, a 20th century scientist who goes to sleep in a hybernation experiment. He is awakened 200 years later, after Earth has been devasted in a nuclear war.

John Saxon took over the role of that Dylan Hunt in the 1974 television series of the same name. The show only lasted one season.

“Eden Log” is the fifth film in Magnet’s “Six Shooter Film Series,” a series of six films highlighting the vanguard of genre cinema from around the globe. This series includes the following films: “Let the Right One In” (Sweden), “Special” (US), Nacho Vigalondo’s “Timecrimes” (Spain), Ollie Blackburn’s “Donkey Punch” (UK), “Eden Log” (France) and “Big Man Japan” (Japan).
