Fahrenheit 451 (1966)

Today on Far Future Horizons we present Fahrenheit 451 based on the classic Sci-Fi novel by Ray Bradbury.

Fahrenheit 451 is a 1966 British Dystopian science fiction drama film directed by Fran├žois Truffaut and starring Oskar Werner, Julie Christie, and Cyril Cusack.

Based on the 1953 novel of the same name by Ray Bradbury, the film takes place in a controlled society in an oppressive future in which a fireman, whose duty it is to burn all literature, becomes a fugitive for reading. 

This was Truffaut's first colour film as well as his only English-language film. At the 1966 Venice Film Festival, Fahrenheit 451 was nominated for the Golden Lion.
