“It’s the linguistic cargo—the story of “Newspeak,” the outlining of the censor’s calling—that makes this tale still fearful.”—Richard von Busack, MetroActive

On this date, over 100 art house theaters across the country will be participating in a National Event Day screening of an adaptation of George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four starring the late John Hurt. Scheduled to coincide with the day Orwell’s protagonist Winston Smith begins to rebel against his oppressive government by keeping a forbidden diary, the program celebrates the spirit of resistance.

The art house cinemas are rallying in support of the National Endowment for the Arts and see any attempt to scuttle the program as attack on free speech and creative expression through entertainment. The event provides a chance for communities around the country to show their unity and commitment to arts and truth. 1984, U.K., video, 113 minutes. Rated R.­
