We the Living: The 80th Anniversary Edition

The Ayn Rand film you weren’t supposed to see

In 1941, fascist Italy approved a movie based on Ayn Rand’s first novel We The Living, not realizing that its message was not just anti-communist but anti-totalitarian. Audiences did realize it and the movie was banned in 1943. Now, at this year’s OCON, you’ll have an opportunity to see a pre-release sneak preview of We the Living: The 80th Anniversary Edition, a newly restored and rejuvenated high-definition edition of the film. This event will not be recorded or streamed, so be sure to attend this year’s OCON in person and experience this unique, once-in-a-lifetime event. In the meantime, we encourage you to watch a special preview video from Scott.
