“If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—for ever.”
– George Orwell
Public and participative discussion on George Orwell‘s dystopian classic, 1984 (1949).
Blue Dots Sessions – In collaboration with Lightcube, the book discussion will be followed by a screening of Mikhail Romm’s Soviet-funded film, ‘Ordinary Fascism’, a documentary on the rise and fall of fascism and the effects of Nazism on German society.
Anuj presents the film : “‘Ordinary Fascism’ collapses a post-war conception of Fascism as a ritualised, codified activity seen primarily in the context of a military-industrial complex and places it instead in the context of day-to-day, banal, mercantile existence.”
You can find a PDF of the book here here, or you may purchase a copy here.
