"It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen." |
On that bright cold day, April 4, 1984, Winston Smith began rebelling against his government by keeping a diary - in George Orwells warning of things to come. On this same day in 2017, cinemas, arts groups and audiences are meeting at the crossroads of cinema and community to view 1984, support free speech, and to protest the attempt to defund the National Endowment for the Arts and thus stifle creative expression and access to it. Rivertown Film and others are participating in a local screening organized by Festoon on Hudson, with proceeds (if any after the film rental) donated to free outdoors screenings in Nyack this summer.
George Orwell's portrait of a government that manufactures their own facts, demands total obedience, and demonizes foreign enemies, has never been timelier.
Tickets are $10 in advance (please help us pay for this screening!) or whatever you can afford at the door.
Purchase tickets online, below, or by phone at 800-838-3006.
