“George Orwell (1903 – 1950) A Life in Pictures is a docudrama about the life story of the British author, novelist, essayist, and journalist.

“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book has been rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right”. — George Orwell, 1984.

This documentary is important because his insights into human society are relevant to the current world political affairs. He was a man of strong opinions who wrote about major topics related to the political views and historical movements of the 20th century. His views are still very relevant to our times, the first quarter of the 21st century and it is also a warning.

His best-known novels are “Animal Farm” and “Nineteen Eighty-Four”. Both novels have been turned into films and have enjoyed immense popularity.

Orwell’s work had a great impact on popular and political culture. Many of his neologisms entered the language together with the term Orwellian, which describes a situation, idea, or societal condition identified as being destructive to the welfare of a free and open society.

The New York Times ranked Orwell second on a list of “The 50 greatest British writers of the 20th century and in 2016, his statue was installed in front of the BBC in London.

Some of his famous quotes:

-In a time of deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act.
-The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.
-Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.
-Double think means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them.
– If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.
– In the face of pain, there are no heroes.
-Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing.
– We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it.
-To see what is in front of one’s nose needs a constant struggle.”

“Shadow built this incredible floating island with salvaged and reclaimed materials. The island comprises a 2-story float home, a floating chicken coop, floating gardens, and even a floating compost shed! He’s been living on the water for 17 years and working hard to protect the Widgeon Slough area in BC, Canada. He gathers wood from the river to use as firewood, he grows some of his own fresh food in barrel gardens, and he collects fresh water from a nearby spring. He filters his greywater on a floating raft with multiple plant and husk filtration layers, and he composts his food and human waste to ensure that nothing goes overboard.

You can follow Shadow on Instagram and YouTube here:

Each part of the island is floating independently with its own off-grid solar panel to provide electricity. This way, if the island breaks apart during a storm, the power system won’t be damaged.

Shadow uses a skiff to collect wood from the river and to get around his island. For longer journeys into town, he uses his kayak to get to the road, and from there, he uses a bicycle to get to town for supplies. He also has friends and family who help him with obtaining supplies.

Shadow says the main threats to the area are poachers, pollution, film crews, and the local government spraying pesticides to control invasive species and opening the area to be a park. The government has been trying to evict him for years, but he feels that his presence is needed to keep people accountable for the harm they’re inflicting on this delicate ecosystem.”
