Join WyLiberty as we watch the film "2081." The film is the 2010 adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut's short story, "Harrison Bergeron."
We will begin the evening with a short introduction of the film by our resident film and literature critic Bruce Walker, followed by the film with a running time of 25 minutes. After the film we encourage everyone to stay and discuss what they took away from the film.
Popcorn and soda will be provided
