“1984” Free Movie Screening | SF
Yerba Buena Center for the Arts | 701 Mission St, San Francisco, CA
YBCA is proud to join over 100 film and video exhibitors nationwide in showing this adaptation of George Orwell’s terrifying and timely dystopian novel 1984 on April 4, the “cold day in April” on which the novel and film begin.
The late John Hurt is Winston Smith, a faceless drone laboring in a totalitarian society dominated by the supreme figurehead Big Brother. Smith’s rebellious affair with a free-thinking comrade (Suzanna Hamilton) soon lands them both on the radar of O’Brien (Richard Burton, in his final role), a sympathetic government official who may be more than he seems.
