A short film adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut's "Harrison Bergeron", 2081 depicts a dystopian future in which, thanks to the 212th Amendment to the Constitution and the vigilance of the United States Handicapper General, everyone is "finally equal...." The strong wear weights, the beautiful wear masks and the intelligent wear earpieces that fire off loud noises to keep them from taking unfair advantage of their brains. It is a poetic tale of triumph and tragedy about a broken family, a brutal government, and an act of defiance that changes everything.

This classroom version of 2081, available only through izzit.org, includes three different video introductions to the film. View them all and then select the intro that will work best for each of your classes.
