Today we had a film show in a club, in the center of Duisi. The film Fahrenheit 451 was a 1966 British dystopian science fiction drama. The film was directed by Francois Truffaut, based on the 1953 novel of the same name by Ray Bradbury. The film takes place in a controlled society in an oppressive future in which a fireman, whose duty was to burn all literature, becomes a fugitive for reading. This was Truffaut’s first color film. As well as his only English-language film. At the 1966 Venice film festival, Fahrenheit 451 was nominated for the Golden Lion.
The film was in English without translation. The RSF students also attended the show. After finishing the film, we had a discussion around the film and of the social role of books in our life.
So, the day was very fruitful and everyone liked the film.
