Ep. 05 – Brazil

Do you feel like you’re drowning in a sea of bureaucratic nonsense–as though your life has no meaning outside the governmental paperwork that proves you exist? More importantly, does George Orwell’s 1984 sound like an idyllic escape from the day-to-day grind? You’re not alone! This week we follow the (quasi)heroic footsteps of paper-pusher Sam Lowry and heating-engineer-on-a-mission Harry Tuttle as they fight against the machinations of a society that only cares for efficiency and the preservation of the status quo. No, it’s not America as we know it, but rather Terry Gilliam’s Brazil.
