Toward the end of the school year we will be doing some significant study of "Adaptation" and how one can effectively communicate the message of the original artistic piece in a different form of art. With that being said I would like you to watch this brief adaptation of Harrison Bergeron and write a paragraph or two commenting on the success (or lack thereof) of the film. Did the message of the original story resonate? Did the changes that were made in the film make sense? Which did you enjoy more? Why?
(you can put this response on the back of the NYT response if you'd like)
