Film showing: Fahrenheit 451
Francois Truffault got the honor of filming this 1966 adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s classic dystopian novel, starring Julie Christie and Oskar Werner. Set in a world of massive censorship and hyper surveillance, Fahrenheit 451 never ceases to be provocative in any of its forms. To be followed by a discussion of the film, the book, and the continued relevance of Bradbury’s vision. Open to all ALA Annual Conference attendees.
