Film School – The Truman Show (1998)

The Truman Show

Get intellectually inspired for the new year at our screening and analysis of The Truman Show (1998). We’ll focus on the film’s philosophical ideas, including notions of free will, the reliability of our senses in understanding the true nature of reality and the way perceptions of the world can be manipulated for nefarious ends. Our post-screening discussion in the Cinema Museum bar is set to be a pertinent and empowering one. We look forward to seeing you there!
