    Belly Of The Bulldog 2015

We know we are in an Earth of the future, where humankind is faced with terminal decline as ever more frequent dust clouds and blight devastate the crops that feed the planet – and yet we seem to be in an agrarian past, as the planet's inhabitants turn their backs on progress, officially declare the Apollo moon landings to…
