Brave New World book cover Brave New World: with the essay "Brave New World Revisited"
by Aldous Huxley

Huxley's vision of the future comes to life in his astonishing 1931 novel Brave New World--a world of tomorrow in which capitalist civilization has been reconstituted through the most efficient scientific and psychological engineering--and its sequel, written thirty years after his classic novel of the future, in which Huxley describes the shocking scientific devices and techniques available to any group in a position to manipulate society.

Stations of the Cross film poster Stations of the Cross
Directed by Dietrich Br├╝ggemann | Germany | 2014 | German with English subtitles | 107 min.

Told in fourteen fixed-angle, single shot, individual tableaus that parallel Christ's journey to his own crucifixion, Stations of the Cross is both an indictment of fundamentalist faith and the articulation of an impressionable teen's struggle to find her own path in life. Though from the outside Maria lives in the modern world, her family and her heart are faithful to a Catholic radicalism that requires sacrifice and devotion at every turn. As she struggles to balance her own desires with the dictates of her family's faith, she makes ever more perilous sacrifices, attempting to please a God she worships unquestioningly in the pious hopes of curing the autistic younger brother she adores.
