Bartholomew’s Song: A Strict Dystopian Future Society

Bartholomew’s Song: A Strict Dystopian Future Society

Bartholomew’s Song is a short film co-directed by Lowell Frank and Destin Cretton, which was a 2006 Student Academy Awards National Finalist.  The film tells the story of a strict dystopian future society, where each person is named Bartholomew followed by a number.  All day long, they are forced to perform monotonous work at a wall-stopper factory.  But one day, the monotony is interrupted by a mysterious music box, confronting pre-programmed Bartholomew #467 with a new decision: stay in line or step out and suffer great consequences.  This short film is definitely relevant for the times we are living in.
