It’s the year 2800 and the Earth is a complete mess, full with garbage produced by humans. The trash has left the Earth uninhabitable and utterly devoid of life. Well, not wholly: one small robot, WALL-E, and his pet cockroach still remain. His job is to clean up the Earth and he’s been doing it for 700 years. The film starts by zooming in from
space on to the Earth.
The camera goes through a thick cloud of what appears to be the debris of satellites around the earth. There is a thick cloud of dust, but as it lifts we see pile upon pile of garbage. It looks like a disaster story, but in amongst this scene's horror, a bubbly, quirky robot playing a jolly tune captures our attention. This is WALL-E in all his little glory. This expertly crafted story reminds us that we all long to be, and have a need to be, loved and
to love – can there be a more obvious treatise to this film in “love one another as I have loved you”. Connection to one another and the desire to connect with something outside of ourselves also weaves thematically through the film. Synopsis written by Adrian Drayton
