This Week in Dystopia

Repertory Series

Co-presented with the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation at Harvard Kennedy School

Thursday, February 8 – Sunday, February 11, 2018

This Week in Dystopia: The Promise & Perils of Democracy is a new podcast of politics, theory, and pop culture hosted by Harvard Kennedy School’s Christopher Robichaud, examining the murky future of democracy in our times. For this film series Robichaud and other guests will leave the recording studio to join us for select screenings as we dive into the dreadful, dastardly, and disturbing futures presented in sci-fi films – from the robot-controlled caste system of METROPOLIS to the prescient satire of IDIOCRACY to the stirring teenage rebellion of THE HUNGER GAMES… and beyond!
