This film tells the story of one man's struggle under the constant surveillance of Big Brother. Winston Smith endures an abject existence in totalitarian Oceania, employed to rewrite the history books for the Ministry of Truth in order to support the current party line and perpetuate a false legacy. Disillusioned by the state of affairs and ill with the burden of lies, his life takes a horrifying turn when he begins a forbidden love affair and commits the crime of independent thought. Sent to the Ministry of Love, he is placed at the mercy of O'Brien, an imperious leader determined to not only control his thoughts but crush his soul. Watch the film and reflect on the importance of freedom of election and being elected, freedom of assembly and political participation, freedom of speech, expression and religious belief, rule of law and other basic human rights. Title also stylised as 1984.
