The Atlas Society is the leading nonprofit organization engaging young people with Ayn Rand’s ideas. This 30-year-old think tank uses creative digital media to promote open Objectivism – a philosophy of reason, achievement, individualism, and freedom.

The Atlas Society presents the empowering principles of Objectivism to a global audience, and offers those principles as a rational and moral alternative in the marketplace of philosophical ideas.

About the film: Mankind has entered a new Dark Age in this dystopian future imagined by Ayn Rand. The stark horror of a civilization destroyed by envy remains as relevant and arresting today as it did eight decades ago.

In this adaptation, award-winning artist Dan Parsons teams up with Jennifer Grossman, CEO of The Atlas Society to introduce the story to a new generation with a provocative, graphic presentation that captures the imagination and invites readers on a journey of self-discovery.
