2081: Universal Absurdity

Published:

I suspect the only regret some people would have is that the story is set so far into the future.

A short (26 min) film adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut's 2081 Universal Absurdity depicts a dystopian future in which, thanks to the 212th Amendment to the Constitution and the unceasing vigilance of the United States Handicapper General, everyone is "finally equal...." The strong wear weights, the beautiful wear masks and the... intelligent wear earpieces that fire off loud noises to keep them from taking unfair advantage of their brains.

'Idiocracy' might take over by 2081 and make the handicaps unnecessary. ;-)
