Fake news in the time of Orwell.
'Orwell's Revolution' looks to the experiences in the Spanish Civil War that would inspire Orwell to write his dystopian classic, 1984. Featuring an interview with Noam Chomsky, the film questions how history is written. Exploring news accounts of the period including Orwell’s own Homage to Catalonia, it finds Orwell in the midst of his own Orwellian nightmare as he sought to fight fascism. When fake news accounts began labeling him as a 'Trotskyist Spy,' Orwell would have to flee Spain to save his life. orwellsrevolution.com/
