George Orwell

A Concise Biography

Streaming Video - 2011
Rate this:
In this introduction to George Orwell's life and work from the Famous Authors series, viewers follow Orwell through his privileged education, during which he nurtured his writing talents from an early age. He joined the Burmese military police but grew disillusioned with his role as an oppressor, returned to depression-era England, and committed himself to writing, notwithstanding stints in war. The film connects the politically and economically unstable world of Naziism, fascism, and Stalin around Orwell to the satiric themes prevalent in Animal Farm, 1984, and his other novels.
