Brand New World documentary screening:
Aldous Huxleys Novel: Brave New World prophesized a future where we would lose our freedom to repetitive conditioning and mindless entertainment. Anybody watched TV lately? And if Huxley was right, nobody will escape, especially not the Savage.
Two filmmakers set out to find out if television and advertising are the hypnopaedia that Huxley warned of. Using a combination animation, street theatre, sequences scored by the controversial Cassetteboy, interviews with everybody from TV repairmen to Huxley Scholars. They ask - do we live in a brand driven Brave New World?
SCREENING - 17th March, 11.45 - British Museum, London - as part of the 'Conversations in Film' documentary festival organised by Pocket Visions.
