2081

Maybe you'll remember the story by Kurt Vonnegut, called 'Harrison Bergeron'. A dystopian world where everyone is equal. And to achieve this equality, the strong have to wear weights, the smart have to wear ear phones which emit high pitched sounds and the pretty have to cover up their faces.

Image


In this society, many people (anarchists) have been taken away, such has been the case for Mr. and Mrs. Bergeron. Their son Harrison was taken away because he took off his handicaps. Several years later, he escapes, infiltrates a theater where they are holding a ballet recital. This ballet recital is shown on the television where his parents are watching the show. Or rather, his father is, the wife is doing the dishes.

Harrison takes off his handicaps once more and dances with one of the ballerinas. The end, I'll let you read/see for yourselves.

I remember reading the story when I was younger and finding it quite sad.
In the story and film, the father doesn't remember seeing his son on tv and seeing him being shot dead.
The movie follows the storyline of the story very well, the ending has a minor change, but nothing to worry about it really.

I recommend everyone to see this short film. 5/6

Oh man, I saw the trailer for this and instantly wanted to see it. I remembered it maybe last week or so, but I couldn't think of the title. :(

Is it out now? Is there anywhere we can see the whole thing?
