Bookmans Presents BANNED BOOKS ON FILM - 1984
May 3rd at 7pm, during First Friday in Phoenix Art Museum's Whiteman Hall will be a special presentation of 1984.  Museum admission is complimentary; tickets to the film are $7 and will be available at the entrance to Whiteman Hall and online.  Bookmans actively fights censorship and promotes freedom of expression at every opportunity because they believe you have the right to read, view, and listen to what you want.  There will be an introduction by ASU English Literature Professor Eddie Mallot.  

"1984" by George Orwell has been challenged numerous times.  It was challenged in Jackson County, Florida (1981) because the novel is "pro-communist and contains explicit sexual matter."

Directed by British filmmaker Michael Radford, 1984 is the second film adaptation of the George Orwell novel. The film is set (and was filmed) during April of 1984 in post-atomic war London, the capital city of the repressive totalitarian state of Oceania. Winston Smith (John Hurt) is a government bureaucrat whose job is rewriting history and erasing people from existence. While his co-worker Parsons (Gregor Fisher) seems content to follow the state's laws, Winston starts to write in a secret diary despite the fact the "Big Brother" is watching everyone at all times by way of monitors. He silently suffers and tries to comprehend his oppression, which forbids individual human behaviors such as free thinking and sex. He meets Julia (Suzanna Hamilton), who works for the Ministry of Truth, and they engage in a stoic love affair. They are soon found out, and Winston is interrogated and tortured by his former friend O'Brien (Richard Burton in his final film appearance).
