Do we live in a ‘normal’ world or a dystopian one? Is there even such a thing as a ‘normal’ world. This course introduces students to themes and issues such as the balance between security and freedom, between anarchy and authoritarianism, between democracy and totalitarianism. We will watch a series of dystopian movies and then proceed to analyze them, looking for common themes and similarities with our own ways of life.
