San Diego Vintage Sci-Fi: FAHRENHEIT 451 & THE ILLUSTRATED MAN

A RAY BRADBURY DOUBLE FEATURE...

 

FAHRENHEIT 451

(UK, 1966) 112 minutes

Montag is a firefighter who lives in a lonely, isolated society where books have been outlawed by a government fearing an independent-thinking public. It is the duty of firefighters to burn any books on sight or said collections that have been reported by informants. People in this society including Montag's wife are drugged into compliancy and get their information from wall-length television screens. After Montag falls in love with book-hoarding Clarisse, he begins to read confiscated books. It is through this relationship that he begins to question the government's motives behind book-burning.
