SPECIAL SCREENING EVENT JANUARY 17! Get tickets at http://atlasshrugged-thedoc.com Ayn Rand & the Prophecy of Atlas Shrugged is a feature length documentary film that examines the resurging interest in Ayn Rand's epic and controversial 1957 novel and the validity of its dire prediction for America.

Set in what novelist and philosopher Rand called 'the day after tomorrow,' Atlas depicts an America in crisis, brought to her knees by a corrupt establishment of government regulators and businessmen with political pull.

Despite critical scorn and continued derision from intellectuals on all sides of the ideological spectrum Atlas has remained a popular favorite and today sells more copies than it ever did.

Why? Because - as evidenced by pointed and frequent references to Rand and Atlas Shrugged in the media -- an increasing number of Americans -- right or wrong -- see their society devolving into a nightmare scenario like the one Rand projected over a half century ago.

Ayn Rand and the Prophecy of Atlas Shrugged looks into Rand's background for the ideas and philosophy that inspired and shaped her novel and seeks to determine whether America is indeed headed for the disastrous outcome she predicted.
