Ray Bradbury's novel imagines a world where books are banned- and possessing, let alone reading them, is forbidden.The protagonist, Montag, is a fireman responsible for destroying what remains. The story raises the question: how can you preserve your mind in a society where free will, self-expression and curiosity are under fire? Iseult Gillespie examines what makes the dystopian novel a classic. [Directed by Anton Bogaty, narrated by Addison Anderson, music by WORKPLAYWORK and Cem Misirlioglu].
