Politics in Cinema: Idiocracy with live-stream talk

Politics in Cinema presented by Centenary Film Society

Ten years ago, satirist Mike Judge told of an impossible future in which our collective intelligence had dropped so low it threatened to destroy the world.

In this future, America is run by a corrupt, sociopathic former pro-wrestler with severe anger management issues, and the most popular entertainment in the land was a YouTube-esque video playlist called “Ow My Balls.”

Flash forward to today. We are approaching the end of the most bizarre, absurdist presidential race in U.S. history. Over the past months, thousands have questioned in social media whether Idiocracy was actually a documentary. Mike Judge’s sadly prescient film has transcended its cult classic status to become a vibrant and essential facet of this election conversation.

RFC is participating in a nation-wide anniversary screening in conjunction with The Alamo Drafthouse and the network of Art House Convergence Theaters. Join us in revisiting and rediscovering Idiocracy on the eve of the 2016 presidential election. A post-movie conversation will be live-streamed to audiences across the country, including right here at RFC. 

In attendance at the live-stream will be director and writer Mike Judge, star Maya Rudolph, and others.
