Fahrenheit 451

Fahrenheit 451 by Bob BiggsOriginal poster design // Bob Biggs
Prints // SOLD OUT

In an oppressive future society, literature has been outlawed and books banned. As a fireman, it is Guy Montag’s (Oskar Werner) job not to extinguish fires, but to start them – publicly burning forbidden literature. When he meets the revolutionary book-owning Clarisse (Julie Christie) though, Montag starts to question not only his marriage to hedonistic and television obsessed Linda, but the morality of his life as a fireman…

François Truffaut, US 1966, 112mins, certificate 12

“This is how you adapt a literary classic to the big screen”

“With a serious and even terrifying theme, this excursion into science fiction has been thoughtfully directed by Francois Truffaut and there is adequate evidence of light touches to bring welcome and needed relief to a sombre and scarifying subject”
