Discover the prophecy behind ATLAS SHRUGGED with new documentary from Chris Mortensen

In AYN RAND AND THE PROPHECY OF ATLAS SHRUGGED, a new feature length documentary from director Chris Mortensen, audiences explore the timeless qualities found in Ayn Rand's epic 1957 novel and investigate what its messages mean for modern Americans. 

Set in an America fraught with crisis, ATLAS SHRUGGED depicts a country where corrupt government officials prey on individual achievement. Part romantic novel, part philosophical manifesto, ATLAS SHRUGGED is a thousand-plus pages arguing for the sake of self-interest. For Rand, self-sacrifice is a terrible crime and has no place in modern society. 

In Mortensen's documentary, audiences will explore Rand's background — looking for where the inspirations for her novel came from - and also explore America's future and whether or not it can survive without embracing the message set forth in ATLAS SHRUGGED.
