Themester 2020: Democracy
This fall, the College of Arts and Sciences’ Themester explores the theme “Democracy.” Coinciding with fall 2020’s U.S. presidential election, Themester 2020 engages in a global interdisciplinary debate about the role and future of democracy with over two dozen undergraduate courses and numerous public activities and events throughout the fall semester. Themester at IU Cinema presents a thought-provoking sample of films that depict or interpret facets of democracy such as public discourse, civic engagement, and electoral politics, and the forces that counter or corrupt them. This partnership is supported through IU Cinema’s Creative Collaborations program.
Join us for a virtual film introduction, film screening, and interactive Q&A with Themester 2020: Democracy.

About Animal Farm (1954)
- Produced with CIA funding during the Cold War, this animated interpretation of George Orwell’s classic novella presents an allegory of communism and corruption. The first full-length animated feature to be produced in England, Animal Farm follows the creatures of Manor Farm as they unite, revolt, and experience self-governance until a tyrannical pig seizes control of the farm with a new manifesto: “All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.”
