Tough question: How do you create a libertarian Wall-E, an animated film that packs a wallop of a message?
Tougher question: How do you create a film about monetary policy and still get the kids to watch it?
If you're Silver Circle auteur Pasha Roberts, you frame your animated feature within a larger science fiction story of "tyranny, explosions, monetary mayhem, romance and rebels." And you go easy on the lecturing. As Roberts explains, "There is no 78-page John Galt speech."
Reason's Nick Gillespie sat down with Roberts at FreedomFest 2011 to talk about Silver Circle and the political and technological developments that inspired it.
Held each July in Las Vegas, FreedomFest is attended by around 2,000 libertarians and advocates of limited government. Reason.tv spoke with over two dozen speakers and attendees and will be releasing interviews over the coming weeks. For an ever-growing playlist, go here now.
