Harrison Bergeron

Harrison Bergeron was a movie I saw many years ago before I left Canberra back in 2000.

It’s a rather unique movie of a dystopian future – the government has stepped in to render everybody average, ensuring a happy population. One particular young man, Harrison Bergeron, is too intelligent for the limiting devices to contain, so the government recruits him to work for them.

Strangely enough, this video rarely makes it onto the dystopian sci-fi lists, and never made it to DVD. Somebody posted a copy of it on Google Video (embedded below). It’s worth a watch.
